First off, let me sit the scenerio of prob #1.Res. is 99 y/o. Fell in room and fx r. hip. at nursing home about a week ago. Sent to lg. hosp. and they sent res. back saying surgery wasn't possible d/t heart being too weak. She was at hosp. for 2 days. The lg. hosp. set the hip and started lovenox. They didn't send her back to the nursing home w/no PT, OT, or ST orders. Just no weight bearing on r. leg. They didn't give res. an abductor pillow to put between her legs. They just put a pillow against the inside of her leg and wrapped it with a blanket. The order said to put demend on resident and change PRN. I got to work today and she was one of my res. The only thing we're following up on is that she has an antibiotic for UTI. Nothing about the fracture. Then I started working on the orders that I had received and there was an order that it was ok to get res. up in G-chair. Res. weighs almost 200 pounds. So, I went to PT and asked if they had or were going to eval and tx. res. They said they asked the dr. for permission to, but no reply so far. I showed PT the order to get res. up in G-chair and she suggested that I didn't get her up yet. I told my CNA's to leave res. in bed for supper, not to move her at all unless they moved the entire body at one time, and not to raise the head of bed unless she was at a 90 degree angle. I went in the res. room to give her meds and do an accu check. Res was sitting at between a 45 and 90 degree angle. Also, I had heard through the grapevine, that we were suppose to use a Hoyer to get res. up. Am I right or wrong that the res. doesn't need to be a Hoyer or in a G-chair until PT evals and decides that its ok or at least longer than a week after she feel and fractured it??Gripe #2!My opinion of what I'm suppose to do as a patient advocate.If I see or hear something or someone not treating a resident right whether that res. is on my "hall", then my job is to stop the actions ASAP and go to higher athority whether the person doing wrong is my best friend or my worst enemy. Also whether it could make my life a living h*ll for the next umpteen weeks. I figure it doesn't matter who it makes mad, as long as that res. is beening treated like they should be.Right or wrong?
