This is an article that everyone needs read. The facts are that a nursing home can sometimes actually teach and train a new resident or patient will be incontinent. How does this happen? How can something like this happen in this day and age? I write here is an example of how this is done forty-five-year-old female patient who entered a nursing home to care for a short-term therapy.
Here's the story:
At the hospital the patient was not incontinent, never had an accident and was able to sleep and live without wearing diapers, as well as the regular world. Then the patient is in the hospital at a good nursing home that he can get a short-term treatment of an injury to his left leg. It should be in therapy, physical therapy to learn to walk again. He now is that only one leg.
Immediately upon receiving the nursing home, a nurse who is caring for her, she asked if she wants to wear a diaper. The patient hesitated to answer, because I thought the question was odd. After all, he does not need a diaper and do not want to wear a diaper. The nurse went on to say things like, well, in case you have an accident. The patient is basically politely talked into wearing diapers, while the nursing home, despite the fact that against better judgment to start wearing diapers at his age, since he does not need diapers.
Like all nursing homes and hospitals if the patient wears diapers and tells them to go in their diapers. After all, that's what for diapers, right? So this is sick, sometimes, just go to diapers and bowel movements himself because he was wearing a diaper. We also reached was that easily jumps into the diaper as it was to be a nurse to come to help him out of bed and help him to the bathroom. The patient is becoming afraid of falling, and did he think that would stop falling diapers and diaper stop the patient call the nurse to help her to the bathroom. After all, that a nurse happy because he's the only one who will be around for most of the emergencies and for all.
But from the beginning with the nurse, who spoke with the patient wears diapers, patient and probably in many other patients were diapers for the convenience of the nursing home, not for the convenience of patients. The patient was not his diapers a day, and the nurse was a little nervous to see what happened, and then the nurse convinced the patient that he was in an accident. If, indeed, the patient is not random, but the patient is placed in a diaper because she wears diapers, and since only the patient rang for help, I had to wait and wait for someone to come and help them. The family members witnessed how long it took the nurse to come there one day, just change the diapers. Thus, the nursing home where so many mixed messages from patients to patients eventually became confused as to why the hell they were to start diapers.
So, many times, nursing home patient comfort diaper automatically. The homes that patients are losing their dignity – not be forced to wear diapers diaper yet emotionally. This is a big, important issue that city officials need to look at. And when you look into it you have to realize that patients are reluctant to agree with the nurses to care for them daily. So if you are a nurse also indicates that the patient has to wear diapers, you know what? This patient will be wearing a diaper, before you know it.
First, the diaper was the sole convenience of the nursing home, and patients talked into wearing diapers in case of an accident. Thus, the patients complied with, okay, I'm a diaper. But what few patients did not realize was that by wearing diapers to hand over a staff of more licenses should not come quickly when the bell rung, because the staff knows the patient in a diaper and you do not clean sheets if there is an accident. In other words, approved of accidents, rather than patient had no diapers, and instead should be paid back and forth to the bathroom on the needs of patients, which takes the sisters do, encourage patients to wear diapers more time.
wearing diapers, ambulatory patients who just need help going to the bathroom, are encouraged to be less independent. They are now more encouraged to stay in bed just because her diaper. The small bathroom roads, shared time, and less bathroom trips, the smaller the patient can not walk. After a week or so of patients, so why not as strong as it was when they were in the hospital, and no one makes the connection to the diaper really so weak because of bed, many times smaller. As each day passes the diaper, the patient is becoming less independent and dependent personnel change diapers.
This whole process is wrong. There are some patients that needed diapers for medical reasons, but in most cases, many patients simply talked into wearing diapers convenience. He hinted that if there will not be wearing the diaper tabs accidents and it is hinted, and meant that the staff will be happier with the patient when the patient wears diapers. Happy happy staff equal sick, right? Wrong. Just because the staff is happy to have so many small trips to the bathroom, that does not mean patients are happier. Patients are taught and trained to be incontinent, and they are taught and trained to be happy that they are for the sake of wearing diapers.
What happened to their relatives at home? They put diapers sake? I would still wearing diapers? It does not seem less independent, now that you are wearing diapers?
not talking about the regular patients in need, who are to be medically diapers because of incontinence, talk to the patients who were not, and who are not incontinent, and these patients politely convinced, persuaded staff need diapers. And while the staff politely insist on wearing diapers just in case, the nurse says if you want to have that choice. This is the choice if you want to be diapers. He argues that in the case of a patient and maintains that there is an accident. Basically, he's instilling the idea of the patient that he will be an accident and it's better for the patient to get a diaper. The patient agrees, only to please a co-worker.
However, at the moment the patient agrees to please those staff that is the moment that the patient is less independent. And is not intended, Rehab to the patient more independent? Thus, the nursing home will give the patient a mixed message. The first message is that there are short-term treatment, and yet, you have to wear a diaper sake.
What about relatives? If the relative is a relative term treatment and non-medical need diapers, you must be a relative diaper? Probably not. If there is no medical need for a diaper that is why the patient is wearing a diaper? for other reasons, yes, Virginia, the staff wants to prevent patients falling diapers.
Why is there more with patients who do not wear diapers? Currently, more is because when the bell when the patient remember a nurse to come to help someone to accompany someone to the bathroom, the patient should wait and wait and wait, and so frustratingly, some patients decide to get up his own and walk to the bathroom did not wait for the nurse to come. Thus, patients learn to wait will wait and wait, so you better have a diaper. This is the implicit message, and that is the reality of the situation.
Patients wait. Patients wearing diapers to finally dump the diaper instead of wet or soaked sheets or poop sheet. Thus, patients are taught systematically taught to need diapers although this choice, your decision; these places makes the patient really has no choice. What is the real choice for them
- bear to wait and wait and wait and wait, when to defecation or urination. And wait and wait and then a accident in the newspapers, their clothes, the whole, or
- They wait and wait and wait rings, wait, and then you to get to the bathroom for a long time waiting for its own since then risking a fall or actually reduced or
- they choose to wear a diaper and if you wait too long, you can just dump the diaper.
If you were a patient, and did you know that there is temporary choice should you bring? Would you risk falling if there is any reason that you need help walking? Or rather, you risk pooping and urinating all over your clothes or sheets, and after the sister is very upset with you? Or you say you will be fine For a diaper? This is what we do for patients and staff. The staff, some of the staff, patients become incontinent train just for the sake of simplicity, the staff, because there is no time for the patients in the bathroom. Remember some patients, staff may have to do some lifting, and other patients might take a long time to walk the patient to the other room and the staff is not the time. These nursing facilities who follow these guidelines to tell the patient to wear diapers just in case they harm the patients. They teach patients are less independent, while the main goal of most short-term treatment of patients to become more independent is no less independent.
If you ever so ill that we have this situation, tell them you do not want to wear a diaper. And then documenting how long it takes the staff to come to the assistance after ringing the bell for help for help to go to the bathroom. Document each time so that it does not happen wait and wait and wait and wait and then contaminates the paper. When they are using wait and wait, they are just training to wear diapers and training that will be like a baby, and increasingly they are required to change your diaper.
Here you advice if the patient is able to go to the bathroom by themselves, just tell the staff that does not need diapers and medical support when they come, they're coming to the aid, there will not be an accident. And best of all, if you have an accident, the crew handled it and will not let you wait and wait and wait and wait until you're in the accident.
The only time that patients need a diaper for comfort if the patient travels to the outdoors, or take short or long trips ambulance, ambulette or access-a-Ride. In these cases, it makes sense for patients to diapers. Those? If you are outdoors toilets are usually so far away, and some is not an option. And you just never know if you will have a bathroom anywhere. So it is important to diapers wearing only travel, because if we do not, and you have an accident on your clothing, outdoor, wet clothes, especially winter itself endangers the disease stays wet or soiled clothing to the length of a trip outdoors. However, once inside the nursing home facility, and if inside the residence, if no medical need for diapers, diaper you do not need it at all.
Just because a man has an accident because they are waiting too long for help, that is no reason why people should wear diapers into nursing homes. It lets help to make things better not worse for relatives and patients inside such homes.
Each bathroom LESS trip makes the patient less independent and makes them more dependent on you, your staff, and when you get home will be worse than they were in such a state when he arrived at the nursing home healing.
What are your thoughts. I would like to hear from patients who were convinced that the staff wear diapers when it is not medically need to wear diapers. Does the staff can do this for you? Please leave a comment or send an e-mail is confidential. The relationship is very important. The unit, we can change the system. All patients, residents and families need to unite in becoming a better and faster service to older homes that people are not to wear diapers when not medically need to wear diapers.
Yes, of course, if the disease is to wear diapers medically, you should. No one is telling you to go against doctor & # 39; s orders. I'm just saying that you do not need a diaper in the exclusive convenience of the staff. And hundreds, if not thousands of patients daily diapers are the sole convenience of the staff.
Important: This article is written by writer and observer, researcher, and author. I am not advocating walking around the nursing home if you need help. I support that patients do not wear diapers, if you do not medically need to wear diapers. I support that patients can not be talked into wearing diapers the only convenience of staff or in their own words, just in case! No patients have to wear the diaper only in the case where the patient has been, and is not incontinent. It is ridiculous to wear diapers just in case!
is wearing diapers just in case make patients less independent and dependent and basically teaches and trains the patient to poop in their pants and urinate in their pants when it is not medically to do it. Let's give these patients back their dignity, and instead let him run to help them, accompany them to run to the bathroom instead of making them wait and wait and wait and wait. That makes more sense. Any patients with medically wear diapers to wear diapers. Any patients whose doctors orders to wear diapers to wear diapers for health reasons. That's all I'm saying. Please respond to your comments.
Have you heard of a woman who found naturally glued friend & # 39; s toilet. They claim that he has been there for more than two years and her skin grew around the toilet bowl which made permanently connected to the bowl. Why in the world does this woman sitting there for two years? Here is a suggestion. Maybe earlier in a nursing home. Some nursing homes, the practice is to let the dish sit practically forever. Patients wait until the passage of time until someone has the time to help them back to their beds. And patients know this. That's why so many people afraid and literally take the patient home care and physical rehabilitation and social institutions. They are afraid of losing their dignity. They know that to get to either sit in the bowl forever to get up without help, or they lose their dignity that they wear diapers if you do not medically need to wear diapers.
Here the news, so news of the toilet bowl capers. This is probably bad and bad nursing homes for rehabilitation and social institutions are doing what human beings. They make people so afraid to go to nursing homes that people say they would rather die than go to a nursing home, and some sit at home glued to toilet bowls, for fear that the nursing homes they were placed.
I need your inputs. You need to hear. And you need to share the experience that everyone knows what is really happening in these nursing homes. The goals of the staff, personal-care staff that ushers in people's bathrooms conflicting goals that patients become more independent.
Please, I beg you to answer, and let us hear your thoughts on this matter. The input is highly appreciated.
