Here is my delimma.
I work as a CNA in a nursing facility in the dementia unit. No one puts the residents call lights on their beds. I do.
I feel that even though some of the residents may be confused, they still have the right to be treated with respect, and part of that respect is having a call light handy.
I don't lay it across the bed, I either tie it to the rail or clip it to the bedframe.
I understand the reasoning behind not having them (they say the residents may be strangled by the cord), but I still disagree!
Can someone enlighten me with a reasoning behind this practice, if there is one?
