Info

In my experience alot of these residents are what would normally be LTC Nursing home residents. When a resident is gerichair bound and has to be fed all meals and such they arent asst living anymore!!!! (I know Ive seen it first hand in the past) The reality is these med-techs and CNAs are in over their heads and Im glad to see at least one facility Pacifica realize that and are now hiring LPN's in there to be shift supervisors (much like RNs do in Nursing homes) to be a higher skill judge on residents needs and such and to be the conduit for medical advice between the staff and the outside medical services (MD offices and such). If more facilities like Pacifica took the right move to step up and realize that some higher nursing judgement is needed at times maybe their would be less issues for these residents. (And as a former Med Tech-SIC and now an LPN Im speaking from 100% experience on this)
