Getting to know about Mom's medical records is becoming a merry-go-round at the nursing home she is in. What can I do?


The nursing home that my Mom is in is refusing to give me information about her medical conditions, what can I do about this and since I am a guardian for that do I have to report what's happening with her and if so how often? What do I report when the nurses, social workers and the business office is telling me wait and I've been waiting for months to get the information?

You r a guardian. Then you have the legal right to know what is going on. Ask who the doctor is caring for Mom and then call him. I was pretty much kept in the loop with Moms daily care even though I had a care meeting every few months. Your Mom is a resident not in jail. You are her representative. Do they have your guardianship on file. May have this spelled wrong but there is an Ombudsman that u can call. Number should be in your phonebook under government. You should have received paperwork of residents rights when she went to NH.

Do you have regularly scheduled care meetings with senior staff? With my mom, they were scheduled every 90 days.
