I started a new client today and he lives in a group home. The workers were falling asleep on the couch or they went into their office and locked the door. I was told to ask for help from one of these helpers. I did ask her every 2 hours to help me turn the client and she did. However, when my client said that he was uncomfortable and asked to be moved earlier I went and got her. She was "busy" on her personal cell phone
and said "Oh he shouldn't be asking to be turned. It hasn't been 2 hours yet. It was unbelievable!!!! She made a big deal about it and made the client feel bad for asking to be turned early!!!!! This man is not able to help himself at all. He has a huge decubitus and if he wants to be turned early so be it!!!! Good grief!!! I told her that we were going to go ahead and move him early and we did.
