My family member was refused readmittance into a local area nursing home where she has been for the last 5 years. (This was after being admitted into the hospital for acute care.) Though the involuntary discharge paper doesn't list this as a reason, it is because I was labeled as a "difficult family member". Hospital administrator said this over the phone. Her paper says "unable to meet her care needs" and her return would endanger her health/safety and of others in the nursing home. This has been extremely stressful and disruptive. The hospital has been left struggling to find a facility that will accept her (13 declines thus far). Along with physical disabilities from a stroke, she also suffers from mental illness (schizophrenia). Most nursing homes either do not accept psych patients and/or are not accepting new patients due to Covid. I am debating bringing her home even though my home cannot adequately accommodate her physical disabilities; and we've missed the window to apply for Home Health state assistance, so home health assistance would be out-of-pocket. Stuck with very few options and shocked that involuntary discharges can occur without notice.
