• if a resident is eating in bed

  • Answers
  • If the resident's physician has not cleared them to eat in bed, then it is not considered safe and should be discouraged. The safety of the resident is a top priority and eating in bed can increase the risk of aspiration, choking, slipping, and increasing the chances of a fall. The nursing staff should assess the reason for the resident sleeping in bed and also encourage the resident to get out of bed to eat if possible.
