I have one too.... I also worked in LTC, saw this charted one day -
"resident became choked, he was in a broken gerichair, so I couldn't get him out. I slapped him on the back a couple of times, then did the hynum hug. Resident then spit food out."..... wouldn't the lawyers who target LTC facilities love to get a hold of that one! BTW, the nurse who charted that didn't work long and the resident is still doing fine!
Thank God on both counts, biy I hope they never sue or that state survey never picks that chart
