Is it legal for a Nursing Faciity Administrator to just dump someone to a hospital because a patient with Alzheimers refuses to be their doormat?
I have done my nursing clinicals in a Nursing Facility and let me just say, most people working there are not compassionate with the patients and all. I've witnessed first hand how the elderly are treated and it is not good. So nasty and disrespectful. Most are just there for a paycheck and that is as far as it goes.
I've also observed while visiting my LO and I see the same thing all over.
To make a long story short, I had a LO in a Memory Care Assisted Living that fell victim to one of these clowns. The administrator at that.
She felt like she could just treat him like a doormat, I guess bc he as Alzh. Nevertheless, he is extremely intelligent and he expects the same respect from a person as I am sure the admin does. Anyway, after he would not tolerate her being nasty to him, she dumps him at the hospital?
Is this legal? I see a very sorry broken system. Now, I see exactly why there are so much bad things that go on in these facilities. It is because they are not monitored and they do not go by any policies.
