Assisted Living blew off my mom's injury
My mom fell and injured her wrist. I was not called nor was she given ice or any real help from the care givers. She did not complain after the initial fall, until a few days later when she mentioned it was still swollen and sore. I took her for an xray and we found out she had a hairline fracture of the wrist! I am very upset that her assisted living facility did nothing to treat this or contact me....and acted surprised when they learned that she had a wrist FX. Isn't standard procedure that any senior who falls and complains of pain should be checked on, and also their family should be called? Until now, this has been a wonderful place and we've had no problems. Now I am concerned. Moving her would be difficult as she has macular degeneration and is well acclimated to her surroundings where she is. Not sure how to handle this. PS/Mom is fine and handling the soft splint on her wrist and hand with no problem. Would be interested in comments regarding this situation.
