My mom, 78, who is in a wheel chair becasue of unseccessful back surgeries can't walk. She lives at home by herself and had been transfering herself from the wheelchair to the bed/couch as needed. She recently feel and hurt her leg. We took her to the hospital and they said she had broken her fibia, but they never admitted her. After a ccouple days in the hospital under "observation" they released her with a brace but she couldn't move herself at all because of the fracture. So we set her up in a nursing home. We find out that we have to pay out of pocket becasue she was never "admitted" be the hospital. Does anyone know if we can disput after the fact that she should have been admitted so we can utilize medicaid?
