How can my mother get kicked out of the rehabilitation facility when the doctor said she could wait 6 weeks before starting weight-bearing therapy?
Mom broke leg 9/25. Dr ordered 4-6 wks to heal before full weight bearing rehab. How can Rehab kick her out before 6 weeks and rehab starts. One month after break and repair surgery, Rehab Center kicking her out - has Medicare and Anthem and dr says with rehab can walk again but kind of break will take 4-6 weeks to heal. Rehab called one month after break to say has reached "plateau" and cannot stay there as of 10/30. Her prognosis for recovery to walk again is good with rehab but only once healed and can bear weight on the leg again. She broke hip and August and was at Rehab Center in patient a week from coming home from hip rehab when fell in her room and broke leg on same side as healing hip. Can they really kick her out or make her pay for the rehab now??? HELP!!!!!!
