Hello to all, I'm sure this isn't the first time this has been posted or mentioned on this forum. But I still have to ask. I assisted a CNA a few nights ago and as she was finishing up the task of cleaning a gentleman, the wet wash cloths she was using that were completely soiled were dumped on his over the bed table and thrown against the cupboard doors of the sink as they were landing on the floor. There was visible feces on the his table and on the cupboard door handles. I was darn near paralyzed by what I was witnessing. I could not say a word in front of the patient. What the ****? She did not clean any of these surfaces up, grabbed the linens off the floor, slid the soiled wash cloths off the table, said thank you and left the room. I just stood there looking at these surfaces knowing I could not/would not walk away without making a supreme effort to get those surfaces clean of feces. I hunted down a few sani cloths to disinfect all the surfaces as best I could from what I observed. This man's drinking cups and food were on that table! Should I or could I have made a mention of this to any of the nurses that night? Or keep quiet and just thank god I happened to be in the room and finish decontaminating the room. I am a nursing student, I am a newly hired CNA on an acute care floor at a hospital. When I made a mention of a different scenario in the past , I got jumped all over by the other veteran CNA's. And when I asked the CNA's directly if this was how it's usually done they got verbally nasty with me. Keep your mouth shut and go on about your own job and your own business. What can I do in the future when I see unsafe unclean business?
