Nurses are being blamed for visiting the elderly in nursing homes this week, with some questioning the practice after photos emerged showing a nursing home nurse holding a patient by the arm in a nursing facility.
The New York Post published a photo of a nursing house nurse holding up a patient to an elderly resident, and the caption said that the nurse “did not seem to mind”.
But in a post on social media on Tuesday night, the Nursing Home Week Facebook page wrote: “The photos show a nurse being taken out of a home by a patient in a wheelchair.
This is a sick and dangerous practice.
If we were to go back in time and stop this, we could have a lot more patients who could benefit from the help.”
Nursing Home Week, which was created by New York State Nurses Association (NYSNA) president and CEO Susan Stokes, is aimed at raising awareness about the issues facing nursing homes and encouraging members to speak up about nursing home care.
According to Stokes’ statement, there are two reasons nursing homes do this.
One is that the elderly can’t speak up and, secondly, the nursing home is being run by people who want to maintain control over the facility.
“Nursers who have had their say are now being told to go along with the ‘good old boy’ model of nursing,” the statement read.
“The old-boy model, which has been the norm in nursing home management for decades, has become the new norm for nursing homes.
It is simply not the way to run a nursing program.”
Nurses who visited the elderly are allowed to hold hands, hug and kiss the elderly, according to Stopes’ statement.
But it is not just the elderly that are in need of care in nursing facilities, according the NYSNA.
There are also concerns that these visits are being used to collect information about elderly residents, and that nursing home residents are being treated in a way that is inappropriate.
“Many elderly residents who have suffered from Alzheimer’s and other dementias have been seen in nursing and home care facilities in violation of their rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act,” Stokes said.
“It is disturbing that the nursing homes that operate these facilities are using these visits to collect sensitive information about the mental health and health care needs of elderly residents.”
I am not a nurse and this is not my job to tell the elderly how to care for themselves, but this needs to stop.
Nursing homes need to do better.
They need to take care of their residents and their families.
“Dr Jhansi Vaidyanathan, a psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania, said it is troubling that nursing homes are treating the elderly as a resource rather than a human being.”
It’s just not acceptable to treat a patient as a caregiver,” she told The Straits Times.”
If a patient is suffering from dementia, the care should be aimed at making them feel better, not to treat them as a person.
“Dr Vaidanathan said that nursing facility managers need to know that if they don’t provide the best care for their patients, they are not welcome in their facilities.”
The idea that nurses are somehow less important than patients is really scary,” she said.”
They’re not going to give you the best nursing home experience because they know they are going to be treated in an inappropriate way.
They’re going to feel unsafe.
“In a statement to The Strait Times, Stokes told The Huffington Post Australia: “We are deeply saddened by the inappropriate and disturbing photos.
The nursing home staff is being held accountable for the behavior of the nurse who was seen holding a nursing infant.
“These actions are in clear violation of the Americans With Disabilities Acts (ADA) and NYSSA policy and are unacceptable and unacceptable.”
Dr. Vaidananathan said she hoped the New York Nursing Home Month, which started on Tuesday, would be a time for nurses to come forward with their own experiences of care at nursing homes, and raise awareness about what they experience.
“When you talk about nursing homes in general, it is important to speak about what it is like to work in a facility, but it is also important to talk about what you do in a setting that is a part of the continuum of care, not just in the nursing facility,” she added.
“I think nursing homes need better standards of care and better training.”
Dr Vikram Kishore, the founder of the Aging Care Network, told The Times that nursing facilities need to have a culture of respect and dignity for the elderly.
“We need to make sure that the staff at our facilities are doing the best that they can with the resources that they have at their disposal,” he said.
