I think I might want to consider transferring my MIL out of that hospital if there's any way possible. Obviously she's anxious and no wonder. Is there another facility with a reasonable level of care?
There is one facility in another town. But I will have to talk to spouse about this. She can be stubborn. I fear gangrene can come into play here, doc said it could. Then he said he may go in an reopen site and clean out infection. I've seen this done, not pretty site. Hate to say it, but ready to bring in the maggots..LOL I know sick, but this is what they use to do. Forgot to mention in last post, my mom was found hanging in between bed rails headed for the floor. Boy you guys just dont know my anxiety. Until I can be heard, whether thru you all with my story for the march, or thru newspaper (actually want to do both), I can not let this go. I feel mom's dying was prolonged. Grrrrr!!!
, not fair to her. I want to heal to let myself/mom rest. This has put a damper on my grieving. I am also on a caregiver board, and am going to recruit them, for they too are having same problem with NH's. Does the government really think they will never be put in a patients situation? They are in for a rude awakening..Now, where do I send my story? for the march.thanks for letting me vent here. Hugs/go get them, Carla
