I recently drove my mother to the emergency room after a fall and she refused to get out of the car. The nurses at the emergency room explained that they could not force her to receive care, even though she was bleeding and bruised. She fell again a few days ago and cracked her forehead open. I am sure she needs stitches, but she refuses to get medical care for the injury. My mother also refuses to see her doctor and therefore is not taking the blood pressure medicine that is prescribed to her.
I very much resent her putting me into this position of worrying about her health and not helping me with doctor appointments and care for when she falls and injures herself, but what can I do?
