I was wondering what other nursing homes policy is in relation to fingernail clippers? Does each resident have to have their own? or how does it work?

One of our residents in the dementia wing continuously calls out help me, help me, help me,even when she doesnt need any help, then follows up by a very convincing 'i need to go to the toilet now, im going to pee myself'. She usually has just been on the toilet. With words and sums on paper, folding washing, reading the newspaper with her, word search etc., all divert her attention to calling out, but as soon as you leave her side she starts again. Is there anything else i can do that would reassure her and also let me spend more time with other residents as well.
