The Elderly have been hit hard. The nursing home connected to the Hospital only has one bathroom for each long hallway. Most of the patients are not ambulatory. Many of the healthcare providers quit because of the fear of COVID.
Friday we were able to bring bedside commodes, wheelchairs, and walkers so these folks that can not take care of themselves or get to the bathroom can use the potty chairs next to their bed or be wheeled in a wheelchair when they can not walk. It is very frustrating and messy we you can not make it to the bathroom.
We also want time to visit them as they are very lonely. We put in permission slips while we were there and hopefully they will allow it. Thank you for making this possible.
