Question about consent/refusal with non-communicative pts

  1. 0
    If you are in a LTC facility and you have a resident who is mostly unable to verbally communicate (they try but most if not all of it is unable to be understood), when their mannerisms and tone of voice seem to indicate a clear refusal of care (feeding, bathing, meds, etc), do you continue care anyway?
