Mom has been having some signs of anemia in her blood for the past six months or so and her home-care doctor has said he cannot do anything further for her -- neither with the blood nor with her more important issues, the spinal/nerve problems that prevent her mobility.
So, his suggestion was to admit her to the Mayo Clinic -- a 5 hour drive from our home. I'm wondering if any other hospital in our area (Rush University, Northwestern, University of Chicago) might be able to give comparable care to that of the Mayo.
She would need a place where the doctors would look at her condition comprehensively (Mom always says she needs a "Dr. House" like in the show of that same name) and not discharge her without real progress . . . or with transferring her to a physical rehab facility.
Does anyone have advice?
