An the family wants rehab or therapy to continue. My father is in a nursing home (short term) and he was sent for rehab/therapy. He has been there two weeks and they are now advising us that they will discontinue his therapy because they feel he has plateaued. The last week he had a uti which caused some confusion and pain and also they started him on a sleep medication that made him tired during the day. I told them to discontinue the sleep medication and today he is very alert. Can family insist that therapy be continued? I would like to transfer him to a different nursing home and have therapy there and see what they say. Do we have any rights to ask that therapy be continued? He has medicare part A and B and also medicaid.
