My mom is in severe pain from a fracture. Where should she be living right now if she can’t be left alone?
Mom had a hairline fracutre of 3 ribs a few months ago. She has now either reinjured the old frature or this is a new one. Her doc sends her to the emergency room. The docs there give her meds and send her home in pain. She cannot get around without help at home. And unless she has a 3-night hospital stay she cannot receive in-home or rehab services.
Can someone please tell me where she should be now? Should her doc be admitting her to the hospital? I have contacted a rehab facility - but I do not know if she will be elegible. This seems more medical to me. I am so CONFUSED. Please shed some light on this chaos for me. thanks!!!!!
