We had an Alzheimers patient fall and break her hip last week and she came back last night. She had been on a low bed before. We are supposed to get her up for meals and it is very difficult to do from on the floor. She is also combative and tried pulling out my hair and pinching me. Later she tried to bite me
We wanted to put her in a higher bed to make transferring easier on her and us. Our don was totally against this but the doc said I could put her in one. The don called him and told him she didn't want this. How do we make the transfer safer for her and her fx and also keep all our hair on our heads.
