Hello to all Private Duty Staff. We as many others have a policy not to keep anything present that would create odors in the living areas.
had to launder your patient's night clothes due to them being soiled during the night -- how would you handle it if -your own socks soaked up patient's urine (which leaked onto the floor before my shift). ? The question is: If we are not supposed to use any of client's supplies, or wash all of our laundry on assignment, then would it make sense to throw her urine soaked into my socks without an infraction from my agency? We aren't allowed to go barefooted so that was another thought.
What would you do? Thanks!
