Hello all, after respiratory failure Dec. 11, 2017, my 70 year old mom has been in and out of the hospital. Recently, she was admitted to an extended care facility to work on rehab. She entered the extended care facility with two minor sores on her butt (barely stage 1 and very small). After being there for nearly a month, she was discharged to a skilled nursing facility three days ago. The next day after discharge that new facility sent her to the ER (in a different town). There, they discovered a large stage 3 bedsore. We were devastated and furious! A couple of weeks ago we were told that the minor sores were gone and nothing further was said about bedsores. How is it that a patient is worse off for having been in the care of the extended care facility? Is this common? What can we do? Thank you. Labeled this question as Elder Abuse because I was not sure which label was most appropriate.
