Mom had a stroke July 1, rehab, then dx of vascular dementia in rehab. She's always been very anxious, with labile bp. She broke her hip last week, had surgery on Sunday to repair. She seems to have forgotten how to swallow. Speech has told hospital to without food and fluids, pending a more thorough swallow eval. She had an impacted esophogus three weeks ago; they had to scope her. They are witholding meds overnight, got them to give her Ativan in her IV instead of Klonopin by mouth, but I'm worried about bp meds not being given. Have pointed out esophogus issue to nurses, PAs, Docs every day, but they are not calling the GI folks who saw her in the ER or for followup. Is there something that I should be doing that I haven't thought of?
