My FIL has had a very rocky few months and he had a visiting nurse that came to his home. At first he was okay with her and then we do not know all that transpired but he was not too happy with her coming around much anymore and was slightly relieved when his care transitioned. He was being seen by another agency and Medicare would not pay for both.
He is now in the hospital but prior to going, he told my husband that she called him wanting to come back over and see him, give him a bath if he needed and he thanked her but told her, "no" and that someone was taking care of that.
She has contacted us twice today and we found out she contacted another helper (not through an agency) of my FIL trying to find out where it is now. The lady not through an agency had a talk with our family and confirmed some basic concerns we had had about this nurse.
We spoke to the lady we trust this evening and it turns out this nurse was found sitting in my FIL's driveway this afternoon as well as going into nursing homes in the area asking if he is there. The lady told us, "this nurse is telling me she is going to track your FIL down and is insistent on seeing him."
We were concerned with some of the care my FIL received, her snappy attitude toward his family, and her insistence of wanting to "stop by" or to continue contact when she was clearly no longer assigned to be his nurse.
We do not want her to know where he is at the time for several reasons and know there is no going over her head to a supervisor because we expressed some concerns in the past and nothing really changed. Also, once she leaves their office, she is able to go anywhere on her own time.
Has anyone had this happen? I could understand if this had been a private individual we never checked out, but this is someone through a reputable agency.
Any suggestions on how to address this situation?
