My mother in law has great medical benefits that will pay for in home hospice. The problem is, this week she was erroneously sent to a rehab facility even though there was not a chance she would be able to rehab due to the extent of her cancer's spread throughout her body. My father in law didn't realize the discharge restrictions at the time he agreed to send her there.
She is dying and we have told the rehab facility directly that we want her home immediately because it is clear she won't live much longer, (maybe a week or two at best) and we want her family to be able to spend unrestricted time with her at home before she passes. The rehab facility is shamelessly dragging their feet so they can get paid by Medicare (she's only been there a few days so she's still under the 30 days for the most Medicare rehab payout).
We are considering an AMA given the sham and it would be good to know if we discharge her ourselves and get hospice care into the home within a few days.
