missing AE stockings

  1. 0 When there is a dependent patient who relies on staff for bathing and putting on the AE stockings,
    and then the stockings go missing - with the result that the patient now has none - and is left with
    bare feet and running shoes to wear - who is responsible for replacing the AE stockings? The patient
    had to pay for these in the first place, they cost about $100 per pair, and seem to have gone missing
    following bathing?

    Ginger, our pt belongings are documented q shift...glasses, hearing aids, dentures. Our hospital has a fund for replacing lost stuff. By documenting whats there, we can keep track of wandering teeth fairly well. Hope your pt gets new stockings soon. Ivanna
