My dad has Alzheimer's and fell. He went to the hospital where they gave him Dilaudid for pain and he hasnt been the same since. Its been days and now they dont seem to know why his dementia has gotten so much worse. They are now saying that they want to take him the psych ward. My sister fears it is to evaluate him that his decline was normal not due to the heavy drug side effects.. Is this a scary place for an alzheimers patient?
