INCIDENT AT MY GRANDMOTHER’S REHAB FACILITY.

grandmaAt close to 2pm when my Mother was on the phone with my Grandmother to see if wouldn’t mind having a buttermilk chess pie, one of the nurses or aides told my Grandmother to shut her damn mouth. My Mom left out of here telling us to make sure to have enough money to bail her out if needed. By the time my Mom had arrived at the facility, my Grandfather had taken care of the problem.

He had walked down to the manager’s office and let them know that he almost knocked down one of their employees for what she had said. The manager told him that they will take care of it and look into it. My Grandfather was fuming ma ,because he was in the room when this happened. This is the first time that we know of that she has been verbally abused. It will be the last time. I think we still have family trickling up there after hearing about this incident. They have been a little rough when they had to change her and when they get her out of bed, so now they must have two people and use a hoist. They also have to have two people to change her also.

My Grandmother lets them know when they are a little rough with her. It  doesn’t go on very long before it gets reported. Nobody hurts one of our family and gets away with it. If you are having problems at work or at home , you DO NOT TAKE IT OUT ON YOUR PATIENTS. They cannot defend themselves and some of them don’t see family for years.  It is not worth losing your job over it. You are there to help them, not to harm them. So I will step down off my soap box now. Other than this incident, my Grandmother is doing well and improving daily.

  1. There is no excuse for someone at a rehab facility abusing a patient.

    • True that. I was a nurses aide in high school and I always treated them with respect.Even when I was having a bad day, because it was not there fault that my day was scrappy.

  2. I’m glad things are improving for your grandmother. 🙂

  3. Glad you shared this. It happens more than most people know because the elderly are mostly unable to fight back. Glad your grandmother is doing good.
