My dad's medical bed broke and won't rise, and he is in his 90's. My mom recently passed and I am upset how things went with her care because I realized too late that her swallowing issue was not dementia but probably GERD related because she could swallow fine depending on what time she was eating. Strange right? And hospice was only stuck on "it's the progression of the disease" But that is another story... back to the bed... The heartache of her last week and then her passing felt worse when a few days later, my dad's own bed stopped lowering at the head. It made my life more manageable to keep the wheelchair for him and the bed like the driver said. He said it is ours. The insurance which is a Medicare advantage has no record of monthly charges on their records when I contacted them by phone. What does that mean? I have not checked the old monthly statements yet. If Medicare keeps buying new ones because they have suppliers that rely on Medicare to stay in business, then Medicare would simply order new beds for each hospice patient. If they clean them and reuse for a next patient, Medicare would not show an expense for it right? It would make my life easy if I can keep it for my dad.
