I want my husband out of the nursing home.
My husband, who has dementia, had CHF and developed pneumonia in the hospital. He was in ICU intubated for three days under anesthesia. It took him two and a half days to wake up. After two weeks in the hospital, he had to go to skilled nursing for rehab. He has been here two weeks. He's getting physically stronger, but mentally deteriorating. It's not just the dementia, its depression, anxiety, delusions, and paranoia. HE IS SO MISERABLE THERE. I want him home at the end of the week. They say he'd be leaving AMA, and Medicare might not pay. Is that true? I feel his mental health depends on coming home and having some in home care. He'll always have dementia and I know it will worsen. I can deal. He deserves what little quality of life he has. I think it is their interest to keep him there. MONEY. 😪
