My 75 yr old dad has had 3 strokes. he is paralyzed on his right side and has Parkinsons. He was admitted to a nursing home about 6 weeks ago. I found out today from his roomate that a CNA got mad at dad when he asked to be put in bed last nite and picked him up out of his wheelchair and threw him onto his bed. Then she just turned around and left the room. Earlier she had been in and found dad in his wheelchair washing his hands in the bathroom and scolded him for not asking for assistance. She then jerked his wheelchair so hard that dad hit the side of the door frame. She fussed and threw her arms up in the air and just left dad in the middle of his room. I alerted the staff about this as soon as I found out it had happened. In the meanwhile, today dad is very ill with vomiting and diarrhea. He is vomiting green liquid and has a fever. The Dr ordered Xrays and blood test. Dad and his roomie did not know the CNA. But the home has started an investigation. They said it could take days because the CNA that was supposed to be caring for dad is scheduled to be off for 2 days. With these kind of accusations you think they'd talk to her ASAP. I am so upset that I want to have criminal charges brought against her and she needs to lose her license.
There should be an investigation. The NH should not brush these alegations under the rug. As for the CNA, she/he has a license and should not be able to keep it if guilty.
jesus ! that cna better hope she never has to meet me !
