My mother requires two types of insulin injections that she can't do herself. Can I give her the insulin or is it a skilled need done only by nurses?
My mother is in kaiser because she had a stroke. She is being discharged and Kaiser will not put her in a skilled nursing facility, as they say she has no need. She requires two types of insulin injections and cannot do them herself due to her condition. Is giving insulin a skilled need done only by nurses? They are saying I have to take her home, but there is no way I can care for her in the condition she is in. Please advise.
