My 77 yr old mother lives with me and my son. She goes to dialysis 3 times a week; but other than that she is relativelly healthy. Two weeks ago she fell and broke her hip and after 3 days in the hospital she went to a rehab facilty. These first 2 weeks have been a nightmare with pain management; it is either to much and she is a zombie or to little and she is in so much pain she can’t function. Between that and dialysis she has gotten nothing accomplished in terms of therapy. At the care meeting we were told she will not get better, she made no progress and will go home in a week where she will need 24 hour care. So a hip fracture means you go to a nursing home? She can not get herself out of bed pull herself up and they haven’t taken her to the bathroom once; although after surgery in the hospital the nurses there took her to the bathroom. I know next week is the 20 day mark of full coverage. I was there all day today and watched her do an hour of therapy and the therapist said she did 100% better and she ate 90% of her meal. After much research I know we have rights in terms of medicare. If her therapist notes now reflect she is progressing can they still make her go home or is it based on the notes from last Wednesday?
