Hello, I am trying to find out if Alabama nursing homes/health facilities/special care facilities, etc. care for a patient fitting this description:
26-year old female, quadripeligic. Her spine is crushed, requiring her to be on a ventilator for 4 hours each day (while she is sleeping).
Assuming her insurance/funding is taken care of, are Alabama facilities licensed to assist a patient of this nature?
I have been told there are no Alabama facilities that can/will take ventilator patients and I am trying to confirm this and find out more details.
If this is the case, where does the patient go?
Thanks very much for any basic information you all can provide.
