My grandfather is in a rehab facility and is supposed to get discharged Tuesday. He is in control of all his medical decisions, and is in need of his liquids being thickened due to a stroke. He doesn't like his liquids thickened, and doesn't want them to be once he is at home. His wife want to honor his wishes after being told he has 6 months left to live if that. The facility told his wife his liquids needed to be thickened still at home, and she told them she wouldn't do that because that is not what he wants, and wont drink anything thickened. They are now threatening to delay his discharge and call APS on her if she does not thicken his liquids, but HE is in charge of his own medical decisions and is well aware of the dangers of not thickening his liquids. I want to know if the nursing home has any legal standing to call APS on them. The social worker called my mom threatening to call APS out of "moral duty" but last time I checked if the patient doesn't want something and is legal making decisions, then the patient doesn't have to comply with their recommendations.
