Recently lost my Dad after a 7 year battle with Parkinson's & Diabetes. He developed a diabetic ulcer in his heel, got infected. After 6 weeks of antibiotics at home we had to call 911 because we suspected a UTI. Spent 4 days in hospital where MRSA was discovered. After 62 days in a SNF and two days after getting the flu shot he passed away. Don't know cause (they didn't tell me) simply said it was very peaceful. Still waiting for Death Certificate. While at the SNF he developed HORRIBLE bed sores, that were brought to our attention by a CNA, not wanting to "get in trouble." Apparently when she brought it to the the RN's attention was told by the RN "no need to treat the bed sores he has cancer anyway" Mind you My Father did NOT have cancer and if he did still not a reason not to treat his bedsores!! My Dad was taken care of at home by my Mom and Son not once had he developed a bed sores... not a ONE!! I had asked them to run several test and never received results. I know nothing will ever bring my Dad back but I want some answers. Do we have a right to his medical records? By the way we were a family that was there every single day, not one day would go by that we would not visit him and knew the staff well or so we thought. To this day not even a card was sent offering their condolences. Sorry for rambling on I just don't know who to turn to!
