Can any ine help find publications oif you are to float heels when they are on an alternating air mattress. I have tried two bed companies and they reall do not address floating of heels.
I have seen and used it several times in the elderly to appieite stimulant. If it is going to work for the resident it does well. Not all states will allow it useage in this manner for the elderly.
CMA is a certified medication aide.
Not all states have them.
I have said it for years now it really happened. I live in WA close to the Seattle area. Moved here from the Midwest about 5 years ago and I even said it back then.
You can flip hamburgers for the same hourly wage and not have to put up with all the CRAP... :chuckle
An excellent CNA who has worked at the same nursing home for the last 6-8 years. Just quit and went to work at Mc Donalds for the same amount of money. This is very said and makes me angry.
How does everyone else feel? Does this happen in your areas as well?
Just wondering...Are there any state surveyors out there?
It depends on which type of procdure they had. Plus why do they need nursing home care and not at home with home health. You should be able to get something from the center who did the surgery. I am sorry I did not understand your first posting as into the Bariatric procdure. I read it to mean bariatric resident in general on P&P for caring for Bariatric residents.
I did leave they fired me. Which was the best thing as I worried 24/7 about the resident and staff as well as lic. It is a sad case when you are forced to take residents who you can not provide the care for as there is not enough staff. Of course you are not going to see any Corp. support from the home office to come out and work as a NAC or a LN. They would just swope in on their brooms and tell you everything you were doing wrong and what you HAD to do to fix it NOW. Nothing you didn't already know. Just takes bodies to fix them. Residetn and family complaints run wild and they have every reason to complain but there are no fixing their concerns or complaints.
We have one now. Took us a while to get prepared (after resident was admitted of couse) Are you seeing more? What are you doing to prepare? Any special policies or procedures?
This is in all states this company is in not isolated to one state. It is a Corp policy.
What is a SANE nurse. I mean I wounder some days if I am sane?
I PMed you! We have the Red,yellow Green admit process. If someone calls on the off shift, staff nurses need to be able to accept the admit and take the referal...We are never allowed to say NO. If our facility can't physically accept them we have to give them numbers of our local or state facilities or take the info and give the referal to another facility. Never say NO...heard it is a write up.
We had the DOP drips before...let me tell you it was scarey. They weren't doing daily wts, I/O couldn't convert lbs to kilo grams :uhoh21:
Yep this is todays LTC....wouldn't mind it if we had staff and they were educated.
They did you a favor......
In that setting something is not right....Are you working there now? I have never heard of this no to no admission.........
ANy one heard of a Corp doing a Green light on admissions. This means you say NO to NO admits. DOesn't matter what their payor source or condition is. Let alone what the staff is for the buildings. I have never worked for a LTC before who does not allow the Administator or the DNS have some say about the admissions and types of admits.
Insulin Drip and dopiame when there is only one nurse on for 60-80 residents. NAC ratio 1-20 on opm's and 1-15 on days. NIghts will be 1-30,35. LN have 40 residents no matter what.
What happens to the LC of the administrator and DNS. NOt to mention the poor staff on the floor.
DOes anyone work for Extendicare? IF so why do you think of it?
