I am an RN and just started a job at an LTC center this past week as an ADON. My former job was in critical care.
QUICK QUESTION: I was extremely surprised to find that not a single patient had any type of ID bracelet or name badge. I was hanging an IV for an LPN and was looking for a bracelet. I did not know the patient, the patient was confused, and I had no way to identify the patient other than the name on the door. My immediate thought is that this is extremely dangerous. Or, am I out of line and this is a common thing in LTC?
