Mom is 80. She has dementia. She is somewhere between stage 6 and 7. She uses a walker to keep from falling. I requested 3-4 showers a week because sitting in a urine soaked diaper can cause UTIs and she has a belly fold that will get the fungus rash if not washed several times a week. We have an aide assist her with a shower 5 days a week to ward both off and she has not had a UTI or rash since last October. She came home after a 16 day stay in respite where they assured me my requests were noted on her chart. She had the absolute worst fungus I’ve ever seen. Deep purple, from side to side. Dripping in slime. About 6-8 inches in vertical length. This tells me she most likely got no showers. She looked and smelled dirty. She’s been there several times before and for longer stays and this didn’t happen. I took her to the ER because the fungus rash was very painful and had spread to her outer labia. Should I have to pay for this full respite visit?
