Other residents have started to make remarks about Mr. G’s odor and staff is complaining as well. You review the situation by having a discussion with Mr. G. and several discussions with other staff on the floor.It becomes clear to you that Mr. G. needs more personal hygiene care than he can provide for himself or that the facility can provide. You present this information to the administrator, Ms. Miller.Ms. Miller contacts Mr. G’s son, Ted, and explains the situation. She offers the son the option to pay for extra services from the facility or to hire an external Personal Care Assistant.(PCA). She explains thatit may be more cost effective to hire someone from an outside agency.

Gloria begins visiting three times per week.(Two months later) cut to your office!Greg comes to your office. Over a cup of coffee, he explains that while Mr. G’s hygiene has significantly improved he has new concerns he wants to run by you.

He is thinking of stopping his statin medication under the advice of his PCA, Gloria. Gloria was asking him about side effects from his medications. Mr. G. thinks that he has been experiencing some of these side effects and wonders if his lack of bladder control might be from his medications.

“diapers.” Mr. G. told him that Gloria was also showing him news articles regarding potential dangers of taking statins long term.Cut to Ms. Miller’s officeYou and Greg ask to meet with Ms. Miller.
