I told the nursing home social worker that I intended to take my mom home a couple weeks ago, but the charge nurse told me this evening there was no discharge plan for my mom. I spoke with her Hospice social worker as well and nothing has been done.
I told the charge nurse this evening that the place was not fit to leave my dog, I would be taking my mom out whether I have their permission or not and she should pass that information on to whom it may concern.
First I'm told the hospital is sending her to the nursing home for 20 days of rehab then after she is in the nursing home I'm told she doesn't qualify for rehab and she's a permanent resident from day 1. Then they tell me she will be in a private room but the other day the move a roommate into her room. They tell me my mom is okay with her roommate but when I visited my mom this evening she was pissed. I took my mom a phone but couldn't call her today, when I went to visit the phone was unplugged. They needed 2 oxygen concentrators, 2 power beds, 2 power recliners 1 television and 1 cable box. They told me I would have to bring her a different kind of phone because there are no available outlets to plug anything else in. They left her a big monster cup of water that she isn't strong enough to lift then they complain she isn't drinking. I asked them several times to bring her a smaller cup. Tonight they gave her corn for supper even though I've told them 3 times she has severe diverticulitis, no corn, peas, seeds, nuts, etc. The other night for movie night they gave her popcorn. Later my mom's roommate started screaming at me to shut up so the nurse told me I was going to have to leave because I was aggravating the situation. The other night when I was there they forgot to take her to supper, they moved really fast to get her something to eat when I called their attention to it.
She was on Medicaid Waiver for home care, I spoke with her case worker and she can get more hours if she returns home and I have a new home care agency to help out. The only things changed with her is she has different meds and she is on oxygen. Since Hospice is for my mom, not me, I will put up with them coming in her several times a week if they are helpful, but if they don't want to help with her in her home, they don't have to.
I really don't care what I posted about before, my only concern now is getting my mom out of that hole they call a nursing home.
