My 93 year old mom fell and broke her hip. Spent 13 days in hospital for hip surgery (2 Pins put in) She had a congestive heart failure while in the Toledo ProMedica Hospital after the hip surgery. She was then sent to a local nursing home. Medicare only pays for 20-30 days..not sure which. She went to nursing home on Jan 10th, 2018. On Feb 14th she had another congestive heart failure at the home and they sent her to ICU at the local ProMedica Hospital. She was there 4 days and then sent back to the nursing home. One of the nurses there came into mom's room 2 days ago and told her that her medicare is all used up and that she will have to start paying now. They asked her what she plans on doing. She can't walk, go to the bathroom, or anything without lots of help. She was pretty upset that that nurse asked her this. I have POA so why didn't they talk to me instead? And I read that if a nursing home patient has to go to the hospital with another emergency situation for at least 3 days that they start all over paying another 20-30 days. Is this true?
