Specialist Heart Failure Nurse recommends logging daily weight to Care Home (to detect fluid retention early). Privately funded Care Home says "can't do that" as they have no sit-on scales in-house, but only one set shared between three homes. Nurse to me: "I've never heard of a Care Home having no sit-on scales before". I've emailed Care Home to ask what is their plan for daily weighing in absence of sit-on scales; awaiting response.
Any comments / advice on how to proceed? Thanks in advance.
Might GP be able to 'encourage' Care Home to get another set of scales?
Is this - if they don't sort it out - potential failure of their 'duty of care'?
