Most everyone at Mom's NH uses some sort of incontinence brief. At night or during naps they also lay down a machine washable cotton bed pad to stop leaks from getting onto the bedding, in case the resident leaks through during sleep. For those who get changed on the bed, it also catches accidents or messes that happen during changing. At the Family Council meeting last night we were informed that if a resident uses a brief, they are doing away with these bed pads, as they’re considered “double briefing”, and CNAs have been using them to help position residents in bed...evidently a no no. I am so upset. Bedding is usually only changed once a week, and we all let them know that they better be ready to change bedding almost daily, as we’re not going to accept wet, smelly bedding. If the CNAs are using them improperly, address that, but not this way. I have never heard of this “double briefing” concept applied to a brief plus a bed pad! The Ombudsman was at the meeting but didn’t have much to say about it, and the administration didn’t say much when challenged. My DH told them he wants to see in writing how this decision was made and by whom, and they told him OK. Any advice??
