My mother frequently falls out of bed. The doctor has ordered a special mattress to prevent her falls. What is shocking is that the nursing home is asking me (her daughter) to pay for it. The mattress is designed to prevent falls. The mattress has cushions that surround the edge of the bed to promote a safe bed environment, without the need for confining side rails. As a back story, it took 6 months for them to order an air mattress when she first arrived to prevent bed sores. Is this legal?
