My mom is needing to move to a new nursing home (we are all relocating to another area). My mom uses a scooter in her current nursing home. She has MS which is why she needs nursing care. The new home says she needs a scooter test done by there physical therapy department before my mom can use her scooter in her room and outside her room. The place my mom is leaving allowed her to use her scooter in her room when we signed a waiver, but she couldn't go out. I am going to discuss with pt about seeing if I can get a waiver in the new place so she can use it in her room. But I told her to be prepared that they may not allow it. She told me they can't stop her and she will transfer herself to her scooter in her room. Now for one, she should not be transferring herself, and I also know they can stop her. But does anyone know what will go on if she doesn't listen to them? I am personally worried she could be kicked out. She will have a scooter test done the next day so it's not like there is a very long waiting time for her. The problem with the wheelchair is that it hurts her hip to sit in. So I understand her not wanting to, and I'm doing to do everything I can go get the waiver, but I know places have rules that they can't just ignore. Please let me know if I need to clarify anything! :) I'm mostly asking what can happen to my mom if she doesn't listen, and is it too much to expect my mom to follow their rules in this situation?
