What do I do when my mother's nursing home thinks she is depressed and needs medication?
The nursing home is telling my Mothers primary care doctor that she is depressed and needs depression meds. I can tell she is taking them because she is not herself and is very disoriented and can hardly talk at times. They have convinced her she is depressed and needs to take them even when she disagrees when them. I have tried talking to her doctor and the nursing home but they continue to tell me she needs them. I have also told her to tell them she doesn't want to take them, but they continue to talk her into it. Should I pursue this? Does anyone else have this problem with nursing home staff?
