toenail trimming in ALF and memory care
Author Last Post

I live at Covenant Woods, Richmond, VA. We have a podiatrist who is an outside vendor. She treats IL and AL residents.

For Independent Living, our CCRC has a podiatrist on staff. I believe no one else trims toenails. Not sure about AL and Memory and LTC

What is your organization's policy on trimming residents' toenails? Only RN? Outside podiatrist? LPN? Any training provided if healthcare staff do it?

Thank you.
