Have you tried calling a Care Conference? You are entitled to do that any time you feel the need. Some times you just need one on one time with everyone involved so everyone is on the same page. Make sure staff such as the Director of Nursing and any therapists involved are there. Write down what you want to say and also their answers. Be calm but firm.

No facility is perfect and it’s better just to exhaust all avenues at the present one.
