    There may be no such thing as a stupid question; but there sure are a lot of inquisitive idiots. No time for sanctimonious, holier than thou, hypocritical Ignorant Arses!

    The CBRF/ALF I work at charges by level of care. Example: if your MIL was living at our facility and needed more than an alotted amount of time (I believe its 15-20 min) of nursing care than she would be charged for that. Or if she had a new tx or eye gtts she would be charged per our facility's rates. if she is needing more help with ADLs on a regular basis she would be charged for this as well. We give our residents a copy of our charge sheet with any new charge.
    It might be possible that she might be needing more care than she is letting you know. We have had that with a few of our residents. Ask the facility manager about it and express your concerns. The CNAs sould be charting daily on what cares are being done for your MIL. We have even gone as far as having our aides writing their own naratives of every visit they made to a room to help the family see that extra care is really needed.
    I hope that you are able to get your questions answered and everything worked out.
