My mother just got admitted to an NH/Rehab center for a fractured hip. She is in a two bedroom room. The other patient is a lady who is dying; her family has called in hospice care. I have met the family and they seem very nice, but one of the daughters told me she and her sister sleep in chairs in the room overnight. My mother told me the woman moans sometimes in her sleep. Is this common practice at nursing homes....that they allow the relatives to sleep overnight in the room? They are from out of state, but the husband of one of them stays overnight at the mother's condo in town. I don't mean to sound heartless, but we did not do this with my father when hospice was called in. I would think there would be rules against this in the nursing home. When I asked the unit manager why my mother was in a room with a hospice patient, she told me they didn't have room to move her anywhere else. This doesn't seem true....I took a walk around the nursing home and there looked to be plenty of empty rooms. Any thoughts?
