My mother was very confused when I saw her four days ago. I had the nurse check her vitals after mom said she didnt feel well. She was found on the floor the next night and dry heaving the next day. I asked them to collect urine to test. "No, we cannot do that we have to wait three days" I replied so she has to suffer 3 days before you even TEST for UTI? "antibiotic over use blah blah blah" My dad suffered because of UTI's and developed sepsis - "gee sorry about that" . "Your mother doesnt have a temperature and we dont know where she hurts, but she is sleeping now nice and comfortable" Grrrr!!! Called last night to hear "Sheesh! I am busy, the head nurse saw her and left for the weekend, she said to keep an eye on her and to do "UTI protocol" your mother is sleeping on the couch "Called this morning = "She is nice and comfortable sleeping, we will call you if any changes" - I truly hate that they *like* it when the people are sleeping because they require less care. The head nurse refused to even test urine and left for the weekend. Sorry, had to vent somewhere.
