I want to know what are the staff's rights when it comes to being hit constantly by a man that is fully alert and oriented with no mental DX. He has hit, kicked and slap CNAs and nurses alike....our management response to this: ... Read More

    "Manglement" was used by another recent poster here on AN (I give due credit to that unknown donor) for its obvious intended use. No plagerism here.

    I don't use it too often but it was most appropriate for this post.

    Best thing is to watch how fast manglement moves when one of them gets whacked! Worthy speed records get set!
    Exactly! My boss got hit one day when I wasn't there and the next day she tells me, "He's in a veil bed and will stay in a veil bed until he is discharged." Because he hit you now he's in indefinite Pack-N-Play seclusion even when he's no longer a threat, because it was YOU not someone else? Yeah, not legal toots!

    I doubt they would still make and sell them then? Or that I still use them at least once a month on my med-surg floor!!

    They still have vail beds but restraint laws make it very hard to use them. I used them on inpatient neuroscience rehab with brain injury patients.

    I have never seen one of these beds in my life, It would've been great for a resident where I used to work who used to have such bad tremors she'd manage to get from the middle of 2 hospital beds next to each other, get over the bed-rails and end up on the floor. We actually had meetings regularly about her and what we could do to keep her safe.

    I hadn't seen one, or even mittens for that matter, until I worked at my 2nd hospital. They are wonderful for patient safety IMO!

    They aren't legal in skilled facilities.
