I posted a few days ago about my dad being discharged this Thursday from hospice. He has been using a hospital bed thru hospice. I thought he would be able to keep it and we will have to pay a rental fee. I've been told otherwise today by his hospice nurse. I think the issue is we have a mobile physician service in addition to hospice and the mobile physician are considered his primary doctors. They have only seen him a few times over the last year. They determined that he doesn't meet the Medicare. requirements for a hospital bed. He has CHF and nightime urine incontinence.
Any thoughts or experience with a situation like this?
I'm hoping they allow us to keep the bed until we buy a new hospital bed at the least.
