Why don't they just call it how it is? How bad does it have to get. I float and watched a nurse take off a huge dressing on the patients bottom and saw a huge nasty sore with open areas and ooze. The discoloration was from the chemicals in the wipes we use and the open areas were skin tears. That is what she told another nurse doing an assessment, after they both got done refering to it as a pressure sore. She must have forgotten that CNAs don't change those dressings. So they decided to let it heal a week and documented how they hoped it will look. So we still boast no pressure sores. Would there be more documented pressure sores if CNAs just got blamed instead. We get blamed for everything, one more thing won't hurt. Then efforts can be made to treat them. Since that patients sore was not caused by pressure, even though it was, I heard them, they got defensive when I said I always find that patient flat on her back. She is not being repositioned. Wrong thing to say. The patient is on an air mattress, turning schedule and only up two hours. It is because she is not eating. And the way we are wiping the top of the bandage. Denying pressure as contributing to the worsening of her, I think they wrote abrasion, not sure, is preventing proper treatment. It will not get back to her not being turned, actually it has been denied. Maybe it is just where I work. I hope the big boss they are all hiding from does not deny it too.
