My mother was intebated after an Acute episode. Once she stabilized, she was extubated but aspirated before leaving the hospital. She is now in an LTAC with a treach and a very strong desire to live. She has weaned off the vent multiple times but had setback causing complications before we have been able to transition her to a home healthcare assisted living situation like she wants. She now has renal failure and has been on the vent for a year. She has been able to be off the vent completely for up up to week at a time and more prolonged periods with a bipap at night. She was able to talk with TBar and go for wheelchair rides and beat me at cards. She is alert and able to communicate her wishes to continue fighting for her life, but without the help of a specialty care hospital, we are doomed to certain failure. I only recently realized there was even such a thing as a specialty hospital and despite the low odds, I want to try to find one that will accept her. Is there an age limit for admissions to specialty care hospitals vent warning programs?
