    Elderly patient left on bedpan for days

    I dont understand how a language barrier can be part of the excuse for why this man had to suffer. I am not an ICU RN but if this patient was in the ICU/CCU am I wrong to say vitals, I&O, focused asssessments, etc..are usually done on an hourly basis? How could a patient go 5 days(120 hours) without having any nursing staff visualize urine, measure and record? How can nursing staff, physicians, family members, or therapy staff, etc not realize this man was on a bed pan? If this is true it is disgusting!
