My Grandma has changed nursing homes today (old one closed down due to bankruptcy) New home is 25 miles away old one 10.. My Mum tells me they are trying to take her inhalers off her as they say it's their policy. So if she has an asthma attack she won't have her inhaler to hand. Whilst she can use her call bell - we know how long that can take. She's bed bound. Just the worry of not having her inhalers could cause a panic attack. I'm a nurse I know they can't do this. There are medicine management policies but you don't have to be a nurse to know that you don't take someone's inhaler off them but I can't find the policy I'm looking for. (I'm currently not well myself)
Any advice would be welcome.
