My mother was treated at the ER for flu like symptoms. She has been fully conserved and the hospital was aware of that and her dx of frontotemporal dementia, as she was brought there by her court appointed attorney. Not know how long treatment would take, the attorney left expecting to be called before her release. Instead, my mother was released from the ER with printed information in hand, called her a taxi and sent home alone. Thankfully she arrived safely, however since no one was notified she had been released, she went home to an empty house left to her own devices. Doesn't the hospital have any responsibility when dealing with a dementia patient?
