Nursing Home Fail

I generally try to avoid hating on nursing homes, mainly because they are easy targets.  Most are understaffed and underfunded, struggle with a high degree of turnover, and try to do the best they can regardless.  That said, one did "accidentally" resuscitate my grandmother, despite her DNR status.

Nevertheless, when the patient's nursing home report includes the words "sent to ER for probable urinal tract infection," I knew I couldn't resist mentioning it here.
