Nursing Home Saftey

What Should I Do To Keep A Family Member Safe In A Nursing Home?

A: Most importantly, visit as often as you can, daily, if possible. Talk frequently to the staff who take care of your family member. Check daily for red spots and bed sores on a resident’s skin. Look especially at bony areas such as heels, elbows, hips and the resident’s bottom. Ask your loved one if he or she is thirsty. Read the medication chart, paying careful attention to nurses notes and checking for blanks in medication administration records and treatment records. Ask what the nursing home is doing to prevent your family member from falling.
