It just blows my mind this is even a question. I agree with everyone here. Why would the pt have to keep asking for it to be removed for 2 days yet no one did anything about it. Everyone that was assigned to care for this pt is guilty. People make mistakes, I can see housekeeping "forgetting" but once it's brought to your attention, please do something about it. How hard is it to empty and remove??
My first post did not come out the way I wanted, it sounds like I am calling only the housekeeping staff slack when I am calling everyone that cared for the pt slack. Yes the BSC should have been cleaned prior to the new admit but since it wasn't, it should have been dealt with on the first request..
Agreed. Or at least when the admission nurse went into the room and the commode was even at bedside.....
It is literally making me gag.....closer reading says that the patient put the commode in the hall after day 2.....AND IT WAS STILL THERE ON DISCHARGE DAY.....what, a week later????
I can picture it "what is that awful smell" "oh it is the commode in the hall" "what is the commode doing in the hall" "That is CNA work" "Don't worry, I delegated it" "I'm not gonna touch it, you do it" "nooooo way, you do it...."
Akin to playground games of 6 year olds.
This facility will be lucky if the patient seeing the full commode where they left it however many days ago when they were discharged doesn't decide to call the state, JHACO, or some other agency to report this.
