“How do you know if a resident’s ADL personal care has been neglected?” asks Dr. Georgia Stevens when leading a discussion with nursing assistants. Immediately a nursing assistant responds, “all you have to do is look and smell.” Describing other places they’ve worked, the nursing assistants describe serious ADL neglect: residents not cleaned when they are soiled; hair not brushed and matted at the back of the resident’s head; soiled clothes not changed; and bathing not done regularly.
This DVD provides an overview of personal care ADL neglect and its negative health and emotional consequences for the resident. Nursing assistants also talk about the importance of encouraging residents to do what they can for themselves and then be sure to complete what can’t be done independently. Finally, nursing assistants remind everyone to check in with residents periodically throughout the day, providing care whenever it is needed.
