Everyone should take a look at this. Unfortunately this kind of behavior occurrs on a nearly regular basis in SNFs & LTCs. No one should have to go through or even watch this subhuman conduct.
I assure you, I haven't personally witnessed this kind of disgust or any evidence that it may have it occurred. I also know a lot A LOT of therapists who say the same thing. For the most part your loved ones are in good hands.
However, there are no excuses, if you suspect one little thing is off, you talk to management. If it keeps happening, you get your loved one into another facility if you have to.
Please click on the link below, read the article, and watch the video. If you find any of the information presented in the article familiar, either bring it to your management's attention (by-passing the nursing staff), or feel free to contact me & I'd be happy to assist if I can.
