Write up a med error on this Nurse or give copies of paperwork and you can copy meds not given in cassettes, etc.....along with signed MARS and let DON do it if you are not comfortable writing up med error.
I would talk with my DON and Social Services. Being it is private pay facility, money can be the issue with the family, you would be surprised how greedy people can be. There are ways his POA could be changed/ court ordered and if he is in his right mind he can make his decisions known, document , document, document and don't give up. We are the patient's advocate.
Working in LTC is very hard, fast paced and extremely stressful at times. But when I leave work, I know I made a difference in lives that most people (including doc's) don't care about anymore.
When hospice is in LTC they are making the majority of the money for the resident........it is their responsibility, that is what they are getting paid for. Call the hospice nurse and document, document, docment.
I work 2 jobs......the one is a LTC/SNF facility and I have anywhere from 45-50 residents to care for...heavy care people......2 CNA's, 3 if I am lucky. My other job is LTC/SNF and I have 30 fairly easy care residents with 3 Cna's. Currently, plan on moving to another state and hope it is a little better......can't be much worse.
