Mom fell and broke her hip because of a cord left in an area she was permitted to access. Her only solace was walking and now she is confined to a wheel chair or a "comfy chair". She had to have a plate put in her hip and now she can no longer walk. She is confused and combative because she doesn't understand that she can't just get out of her chair and walk. The nursing home dumped her on the local hospital emergency room and expect them to find a psychiatric geriatric unit to help adjust her meds so she won't be so agitated. The nursing home says, they do not have the staff to watch her constantly so she doesn't get up and fall again. They put her in this situation with their negligence and now they don't want to deal with her issues. No one will take her due to her medical condition. They truly just dumped her. This is heartbreaking, she is so scared and confused. I have no idea how to help her. She is in the hospital and they are trying to find placement for her in a geriatric psych ward. I do not understand how a dementia ward in a nursing home can not deal with a dementia patient!! Would really like to hear if any one else has dealt with this issue.
