my daughter lives in a nursing home. several weeks ago she started to show signs of kidney infection. this went of for several days at the home. none of the staff seemed to notice my daughter was sick with a high temperature,; sleeping a lot. listlessness etc. finally she ended up in the hospital with a temp of 41.6c
after being in the hospital for a week she was released and sent back to the nursing home. now here's my problem. I went to visit my daughter's doctor and I wrote a letter showing my concern with what I thought was bad care given my dauther leading up to her hospital. in the letter I asked the doctor if he could talk with the people at the nursing home about my concern, and for him to ask the staff at the nursing home to keep an eye on my daughter in the future because of her prone ness to infections. what the doctor did made me angry and I don't know if I have a right to be angry. but rather than speak with anyone at the nursing home the doctor mailed this letter to the nursing home to the administrator.
the administrator called me into the office yesterday and we had a long meeting as she told me what a good job the home was doing with residents. which I don't agree with.
