So, my little patient was referred for in-home PT about a month ago. He's very stiff, and they figured the therapist could help with that. The PT has come out a few times and I'm not there when she visits. But foster mom fills me in on the sessions. I'm very concerned that my patient isn't getting proper therapeutic care, and that the therapist is over stepping her bounds. These are some of the things I've been told:
- the baby can roll over now, so when he rolls over during a diaper change, he's doing it to get away from foster mom because he doesn't like her
- he throws fits & cries because he doesn't feel secure with foster mom & for no other reason (mom was really upset after this visit...)
- PT doesn't do any exercises with the baby. Just tells foster mom what to do
- PT focuses on things like: oral play, getting baby to understand "up" and reach to be picked up, tracking objects with eyes, keeping baby from rolling in sleep...
Am I right to be concerned about this? I don't think I have any power to change anything, but none of that seems related to therapy to me...
