Spouse is in a Nursing Facility that is not close by. Went to see spouse in the NF to find him in a room with a roommate. Th room was so hot, and the visitors had to wear masks, which is hardly tolerable. When I went into the room, he only had a sheet over him as well as the roommate. I asked why so hot, and the reply was because the roommate is always cold. I said I cannot believe how hot it is and no air flowing in the room, much less my spouse is not complaining about it to anyone. No one has reported my spouse strips all clothes off and he does not walk on his own. I do not think he even goes out of his room. What is the purpose of all of this? I have never been in a nursing facility in patient's rooms like that much less only having sheets over them. I get it may be easier to care for the residents but what the heck. Please share your opinions for I have no idea what to do if anything. TIA.
I would ask that DH be sent to another room. That its ridiculous that he is in a room that hot. They can't cater to just one resident. Both are paying their share to live there. If the man is cold then dress him accordingly and cover him accordingly. If DH is able to leave the room, he should be taken to the common area. There are special chairs even for those who are bedbound.
Unfortunately, you will need to advocate for the care the facility is being paid for. This is very common in some facilities.
It is completely unacceptable that the room is being kept overly hot. No air circulating is a recipe for illness for everyone.
Wearing a mask while visiting is a rule that the NF enforces, so not something the heat would change the status of.
Wishing you the best of luck getting to the bottom of this situation asap.
