Devastated! I quit a well paying job 4 1/2 years ago to be the caregiver for my mom. I did not want to put her in a nursing home. She has had 2 strokes. The 2nd stroke which was 4 1/2 years ago effected the area of her brain for thought process and what she says. While in the hospital 12-10-13 my sister asked "Mom how are you feeling"? My mom says not good. She said I threw her out of bed,,,broke her wooden leg (which she does not have) and beat her. The nurse was in the doorway getting her medications ready. I heard the nurse say my license is attached to that. I advised her 4 years ago my Mom said the same thing and it was to be documented on her chart. I thought nothing more of it. 3 days later I was advised Adult Protective Services was called but to not worry everything was ok. The lady came to the house and of course all things were fine regarding my mom and the care I give her. What is not fine is this will stay with Adult Protective Services for six months regardless of being innocent or guilty. My moms primary care physician even said 4 1/2 yrs ago if your mom knew what she was saying she would be mortified. I am devastated beyond belief that the hospital called them when all the drs there and nurses said how lucky my mom is to have me as her caregiver. I gave up everything 4 1/2 years ago and I do not have any income whatsoever. My reward is still having my mom around and knowing the care I give her is better than any nursing home or assisted living facility could. There are visisiting nurses,,,physical therapy, and occupational therapy coming to the house 3 days a week. They said how well I do with my mom. I know its the hospital getting back at me because I am very very proactive in my mothers care and I will not let anything happen to her. Someone please please help me on what I can do about this false accusation. As I say I am devastated and this happened 2 1/2 months ago. My mother was interviewed and told them how well I take care of her and what were they doing. It makes me sick to my stomach now as I type this out thinking about APS being called on me. Thank You for letting me vent!
