Since Mom’s stroke, she won’t move herself. We (hubby & I) care for her 24/7 & tried to get a mattress that’ll move her at night but the wound doctor said a Stage 2 wound only gets a GEL mattress. Yet she never moves by herself. She has Medicare & Blue Cross but Medicare decided she only gets a GEL mattress. The mattress delivered is NOT GEL, it’s just foam shaped like egg cartons inside a zippered cover. We have complained but they insist they delivered the correct mattress. Her wound is all across both butt cheeks but it’s not oozing, just dark red. We’re putting ointments on it prescribed by a dermatologist that saw the wound through a video visit since COVID-19 restricts face-to-face appointments nowadays. Since Medicare rules what mattress she gets & they practice reactive vs preventive medicine, how can I get a mattress that’ll turn her? I still work full-time & after hubby started turning her 3 times a night, he ended up having a stroke they said was related to lack of sleep. He’s okay, thankfully, but we both have to sleep to function. We’ve been caring for Mom in our home for almost 6 years, 3 of those years we also had my Dad but he’s passed on now. And I’m still very confused how foam mattress shaped like egg cartons is considered a GEL mattress. Anyone have any suggestions that might help me? I really appreciate all comments & advice.
