We live in Florida. My father was abused by a CNA 2 weeks ago. He could not give her name and said he didn't know who she was. The administrator told me they are still investigating. 2 WEEKS LATER ??? They told me they still haven't figured out who it was that abused him. That is a bunch of garbage. Dad did tell me that it is the CNA who showered him that day. I told them this and they said they would do more investigating. In the meantime they will be having some sensitivity seminar with all staff members. WHAT?? My friend is a CNA and said to ask to see his chart because they are mandated by the state to chart everything they do with each resident. I asked today and was told I couldn't see it right now and I could only see specific parts of it. I have to complete a form stating which parts of his records I want to view and submit it. On top of that there is a charge to view it?? That is when I lost my cool.. but only for a minute.. "You mean I have to pay to find out who abused my father?". This is the craziest stuff I've ever encountered. On top of that they called yesterday and said dad was being moved to a private room they use for Isolation because he has MRSA in his blood and urine. The only precaution they are using is gloves. No gowning up.. He does have a trash can for Toxic garbage and a yellow one for his linens. He doesn't even have gloves anywhere in his room for us to use. I had to get them from a housekeeping cart. When I spoke to the administrator and the Director of Nursing the other day I mentioned that dads roomate had told me how one of the residents had died in the dining room at lunch 2 weeks ago because the CNA's failed to render aide after dads roomate had alerted them to her distress. Finally her face went into her plate and he got up and went to the back of the room where they were talking and told them " now see, Ms Jewel is dead. I told you to help her". She did die. I saw her Obituary in the paper 3 days later. My brother says I should contact her family but I don't know them and I could get in major legal trouble if something else really happened. But I will say these 2 ladies were really shocked that I knew about it. I told my husband " watch and see how long it takes them to move dad to another room so I don't talk to this man again" 2 days later dad gets moved. I asked to see his chart and verification of his MRSA and they got very upset!! Dads roomate is Autisitc. He has a memory like a tape recorder. He knows what he saw and what was done. I went to visit after this happened to the lady and I heard a nurse tell him not to mention Ms Jewell again after she heard him saying that he saw the funeral home van come pick her up. While I was visiting dad in his Isolation room today I stopped in and saw his roomate. I told him after I visited with dad for a while I would be back to see him to get his list of goodies that he always gives me to bring back for him on my next visit. This man has no family. As I was getting his list and saying goodbye a lady walked up and taped a big notice to his door. "All visitors please stop at the nurses station before visiting this patient". I asked why and she said she didn't know, it was probably for health reasons. Talk about some strange stuff going on!!!! I thought about moving dad to another home but if he has MRSA nobody will take him. I also wondered about having him admitted to the hospital to see if he really has MRSA and to just get him out of there.. Seems like they would be taking more precautions than just gloves if he really had it. I don't know what to do!!!
