I am not clear on all the details yet but it appears the rehab that my Dad was just sent to tried to have him released before the required 78 hours of observation. He was admitted last night. I am being told by Mom that it is because of his insurance. They only wanted to keep him 48 hours but I guess my sister confronted them about that.
His doctors told us he would need weeks or even months at rehab. There is no way he can go home right now. He is unable to walk, he has drains and bandages where they cleaned the sepsis out the joints of his hand and ankle. He is very weak and needs 24 hour care. Mom is in no condition to do this and although my siblings and I can be there off an on throughout the week it would not be enough. I thought they were going to help rehabilitate him to get his strength back... I don't understand. Can anyone tell me who I can call to help us with this?
