My grandma (age 80) fell about 2 months ago & broke her hip. She had surgery to replace the ball joint (not the whole hip). She was in the hospital for a couple of days & was then moved to a rehab center for the past several weeks. Her doctor, both her normal doctor & the doctor who performed the surgery saw her mid week last week & both said she was doing really well - better than they thought she would at this point. So they told her she could go home sometime this week. Well now the Occupational Therapist is saying she won't let my grandma leave until she has a home visit completed & the OT wants to watch her dress the next few mornings. The OT said she wouldn't let her leave until end of next week at the earliest & if she had her way she'd be there for 3 more weeks yet. She lives in a well known senior apartment here in town. They have all the amenities that the OT is saying she needs to have - railings in the hallways, walk in shower, elevators, etc. The watching her get dressed in the mornings bothers me - seems a little creepy. She's been dressing herself for a good week, week & a half without help. Why does it matter how she got there? My grandma has no other health issues & wants to go home. Can they legally keep her there if the doctor gave the OK for her to go home?
