Here is sort of an angry message/question we received today from someone, apparently an employee at an assisted living facility who is obviously untrained for what he or she is expected to do at the facility.
Here’s the message:
“How do i get an investigator to my assisted living facility in Plymouth Mi? we do ALL medical things untrained and i’m really getting sick of it. 1.We empty catheters 2. We handle Peg Tubes 3. We are handling Hoyer Lifets UNTRAINED for more than one of our residents. 4. We deal with people biting us so hard they draw blood. 5. We have people in our facility that cannot communicate and needs to be in a nursing home. As you can see i am very irritated and very upset and want action taken immediately. “
I would recommend contacting the local health department first. If they couldn’t help directly, I am sure they would know who would be able to look into it.
