I am my mothers guardian, and DPOA. Since, her move into the AL, it's been a challenge, I didn't expect. Without all of the details, she has been in hospital, rehab, then AL several times. It's been a cycle with CDIF, or falls. that has lead to the cycle. She has only been in AL since last week of March.
She had a fall last week at AL, (hitting the top of her forehead-large noggin) while a caretaker was in her room.
An incident report was written by the AL facility, and others have been written as well, not all falls.
Today, I asked for a copy of all my incidents reports from the Director of Nursing. She stated we do not let individuals have copies. I asked why, she said it's not there policy, since it is part of AL record only. I proceeded to advise that I am a private payee of the apartment room that my mother stays & guardian which warrants me a copy. She said I could look at it, but will not provide me with a copy.
I am requesting a copy from the executive director today.
Has that ever happen to you, where AL refuse to provide you information on your loved one ? Is that legal? I reading those 'fine' lines in that AL contract, since I have no idea if they can withhold information about my mothers care.
