    I do not know about England, but here where I am, the other residents have rights, a screaming resident would be tried on diffrent medications and if none worked they would most likely be sent to a behavior unit. The excessive noise is a violation of other residents rights.

    UPDATE:

    A few weeks ago the manager had some officials coming in to inspect the home ect. THE DAY before they were due the manager OUTED this little lady to a new Care home. And she isn't coming back.

    Now I call that BAD MANAGMENT.

    What is everyone elses views on this.

    I have seen this happen before, yes it is very bad management. I have seen our behavior residents be shipped out when it is time for the state (the licensing agency who licenses our nursing homes) to come in. It is very sad, I think it all comes down to money, they get payment from those people even though they are violating all the other residents rights by keeping them there. The thing that bothers me the most, is that if it is a private pay resident then the management will ignore the behaviors because of money. I have even been told what to chart on so and so, so their behaviors don't look bad on paper. (Of course I don't, I always chart the truth). Right before state comes to certify them they ship them out like they have been handling the problem the whole time. And if it is a private pay they are usually only gone for the two weeks the state people are there. These are the reasons I hate my job, poor management. If only the public really knew how things were done, it might stop.

    I meant to say: These are the reasons I think about leaving Long Term Care Nursing, I hate the management not my job, I love nursing.
