So my 87 yr old nana went into a nursing home for rehab bc she fell. Within a month she is now delusional and having a psychotic break. Up until last week she was talking normal. She was acting paranoid. This week she refuses to eat.
She is throwing her food and hitting people. She was taken to the hospital last night bc she hasn't eaten anything for a few days. She is severely dehydrated but is on an iv. However seeing her at the hospital she is not herself. She is violent yelling continuously talking about random stuff. Can't hold a conversation with her. The hospital said she is having a psychotic break. Plus have her chart noted as vascular dementia. Can this really happen this bad within a few days ?
