Nursing homes are awful!!
I placed my mom into a nursing home yesterday after a 2 week stay in the hospital. She in unable to walk or even stand, because she is so weak and de-conditioned. The facility is across the streety from my house. I thought that I could keep a better eye on her this way, also I am able to tak e her home during he day for up to 4 hours. I went ot dinner last night and stopped by to see how she was after . I found her in bed with a hospital gown on top of her pj's and they had put a diaper on her. I was livid! also they were checking her o2 sats ( which were very low). I noticed that the hose was disconnected to the oxygen machine. I was so pissed!!!!! Also when I brought her in the nurse told me to bring her meds in. I thought that that was strange in itself. Wanna bet my mom won't be ther for 2 weeks?
