After his health issues were fixed, my father refused to go the a rehab facility. He obviously has dementia and I discussed it with the social worker prior to his release. I refused to take him home because I knew this might be the only opportunity to get him in an appropriate care giving situation. I cannot physically or emotional proved care for him any more.
im looking at it from an intelligent 90 yr olds perspective . you havent lived long enough to tell that man or woman what to do .
It is a whole new protocol required to preserve the patient's rights and privacy, so it is nearly impossible to get everyone on the same page in order to help the man. Don't waste your time trying to make the hospital accountable. If he is a danger to himself/or others, Adult Protective Services can be called, if only to document your concerns. They may not intervene. But soon, you will be able to take some action to help him. Standby.
