My grandmother went to the ER and has been in the hospital for three days without a diagnosis. hat do I do to help her?
I have been with her for six hours each day and have spoken to the nurses that come to take vitals, give her her usual meds. None know what is happening to her other than the symptoms she came in with - dizziness, vomiting. I left my phone numbers taped to her bedside table and have asked for a doctor to call me. No one has communicated with me in three days! She has virtually stopped eating (I did get her to drink some Glucerna today). She is not on an IV, her urine output is not being measured, her blood sugar is high (why if she's not eating?), her blood pressure is high (why?), she has AFib but is on no monitoring equipment. She is weak and too dizzy to sit up or stand.
