My mother was in a nursing home only approximately 70+ days before experiencing bed sores from being left either in bed or wheelchair. Before the nursing home my mother was very active. She walked to the bathroom on her on although totally blind. She went up and down stairs at least twice a week and went out to lunch daily. Bed sores on her backside and skin breakdown on her right big toe led to 2 emergency room visits in 5 days. In the 2nd visit she was admitted to hospital severe dehydration and UTI and right big toe had developed gangrene not to mention MRSA infection. After a hospital stay of about 35 days my mother passed away. The guilt is overwhelming because I feel if I could have kept her at home she would still be with me. However, I also feel the nursing home was negligent in her care. Is there some regulatory authority I can report my concerns to?
