    the fellow that died was 31 and i was lead by the article to believe he was a resident. Should i assume the guy that died was probably the owner of the meth lab? So assuming he set up a meth lab in his own room will this spring up a new assessment and safety check?

    Trip hazards clears? check
    Bed in a low position? check
    call bell in reach? yup
    any meth labs in the closet? nope, room is set and safe!
    It said he was neither a resident nor an employee. Fell into the "visitor" category.

    And I was just laughing @ the posts in The Mockery of Nursing Thread about Meth. I must admit if it were found out to be a CNA/NURSE who ran this lab, I would have fallen on the floor....

    when i saw the headline, my first reaction was "how badly staffed was this nursing home?" i also wonder if the staff were in on it. maybe housekeeping, a cna, or a nurse set up the lab in a comatose patient's room.

    I can see it now. "We need to go back to grandma's nursing home! I forget my meth lab!"

    Next new thread... "I was busted for cooking meth at a nursing home. Do you think I can still get a license in Ohio? It wasn't my fault. I had to do it because they didn't pay me enough! Oh, and the hours were better"
