at my facility we do skin grids on newly reported bruises and sometimes have to do incident reports.
anyhoo a " new " must do have been added on top of the workload - with the cna's having to mark down all bruises
; i mean all bruises
found on the resident's body during their weekly bath. the cna's have to fill up this form marking off where the bruises are found and the nurse on duty has to sign this form.
what is a nurse to do with the cna's form and mark up of bruises in a resident- other than sign it and acknowledge of it's findings.?! i have other nurses who are freaking out about this and making multiple
skin grids added to the tar. it's beyond ridiculous and it's making me dizzy.
thanks a lot
