So my mother went into a nursing home wednesday. They're currently helping get long term Medicaid and Medicaid. I have a meeting with the Admin tomorrow for getting POA and other things, like signing over her SSDI check to them.
All that said, both her sister and I feel the place is over crowded and understaffed significantly. When I was there today, there was only one nurse working my mother's unit of about 20-30 people. And I have a really bad feeling, not just guilt when I have to leave her and so does her sister. The place just has a bad vibe. There's a closer place to the two of us (her sister and I) that takes Medicaid and a couple other places that I've looked at that rent out houses and have 6 beds max. I would like to get on their waiting lists, but how does all that work?
I don't want to let the current nursing home know we're looking elsewhere when she was just placed, but honestly the reviews online for place are matching with what I've seen the last couple of days. I don't want them to treat her differently or bad if they know we're unhappy. Anyway, how do I go about getting her moved once we find a place and get on a list or if they have an opening?
