My diabetic husband in a nursing home developed an ulcer on his foot which turned bad even with treatment. NH kept telling me it was doing really good, looking good, etc. and had even been debriding it. No antibiotics given. Four days ago, I was called and told he had a 102.8 temp and was being transferred to hospital. When I got there, the ER doctor told me he had gangrene in his heel and told me to take a picture of it. It was black. I went to the NH, showed them the picture, and they kept saying it had looked good to them. He had surgery the next day to removed the gangrene and most of his heel. Infection (sepsis) in the blood and may be in the bone. Kidneys are going bad. He is only 53, but suffered a bad stroke 4 years ago, lost the use of his right arm and leg. Fell and broke his hip and required 24/7 care, so was placed in skilled NH home for care. So mad about this. How could the nurses there not have known how bad this was? May still lose his foot.
