My dad is 73 years old. He had surgery about 11 days ago and he had it on his foot which is a foot that is on a paralyzed leg. He uses a brace on that leg. His other leg is a little bit weak but as long as he has the brace on he usually can be mobile and very independent. Since the surgery he's unable to be weight-bearing therefore he is very unsteady. The surgery was outpatient. He's been home and has fallen several times and been taken by rescue squad on two occasions admitted into the hospital for 24 hours and then released. My mom is 72 years old and although healthy she's unable to physically meet all of his needs. Due to medication trauma surgery and the overall situation he's had some big issues with memory and forgetfulness and confusion. We believe he needs to have physical therapy on an inpatient basis but every time he's in the hospital they release him after 24 hours & we go home and it all happens again. What are our options? We live in Omaha Nebraska. He has Medicare and supplemental insurance. My mom and dad do not have any legal documentation such as power of attorney. My dad is very mobile and independent normally so this is not a situation we've ever had to deal with. I basically want to know if he has to be in the hospital for three days in order to go to rehab or can he be admitted to rehab the other doctor or are there other options?
