The bill for the supplies, which is only for diapers, runs from $30 one month to $70 for another, then it would jump to $100. Now it went from $200 last month, to $560. My mom is able to walk and use the bathroom by herself. The diapers are used for leaks and I know from checking trash in her room that she is NOT using 30+ a day. She uses about 5-6 in a 24-hour period, which I know by being there two days in a row on many occasions without trash being taken out during that time period and being able to see what was still in the trash. At nighttime she gets up 2x and asks for assistance to walk to toilet.
I did verify the charges are for supplies only and voiced my concerns for the varying costs each month in the past, but I just got lip service stating my mom hides them in her room by the caregiver in charge of distribution. I still can't find any "hidden" in her room. She does hide other things, but I've never come across a diaper.
I would love ideas and suggestions on how to deal with her facility supervisor with this ongoing billing issue and where to perhaps purchase these on my own for her.
