My question is:
People at my facility are using wash clothes to wash patients with visible BM on the buttucks. Then at times also throwing them in the dirty laundry basket of said hamper. The hamper is washed for the resident with no disinfection (they just use laundry detergent).
Is this a healthcode violation?
Or a OSHA violation?
I am a CNA and I have told me administrator and DON. They just blow it off. I have asked for wipes as they are reembused by medicare and mediaid. No wipes have I seen purchased for the facility!
I cannot find physical proof anywhere in written form from any agency.
I absolutely refuse to do it and find it gross besides being a unhealthy to the patient.
Some of the caregivers find nothing wrong with it!
