Can someone tell me exactly what is in the job description of a Tech or Charge Nurse at a dialysis unit. I'm hearing very desturbing stories of poor care to some of the patients at the unit I go to. There is one person who is terminally ill and all her organs are shutting down. While on dialysis she had an accident and soiled herself. The dialysis unit called the family member to come & clean her but she was picking up her grand kids first. One one, not a nurse or tech would take her to the bathroom and clean her up. She sat in her feeces for over 45 minutes and got an infection on her bottom. I fine that disrespectful, unhealthy and WRONG. Besides helping the patients through their life saving dialysis don't they have an obligation to keep patients safe and clean so no infections occure. We are people in need of medical help and would hope we would be taken care of the best they can.
Thank you for suggestions to who can be contacted on these health issues.
