My 87 year old mother fell and broke her hip. She had been living in a memory care unit, due to dementia. Physically she was is very good shape, walking and using the restroom independently, feeding herself but needed assistance with bathing and dressing appropriately. After the hip surgery she went to a skilled care facility so she could get rehab. While there she contracted C-diff and a heel ulcer. Due to these two complications, her rehab has been very limited. They don't want her to walk on the heel until it heals so she is only working on transfers and some ROM type exercises. The antibiotics for the C-diff and the infected heel ulcer have affected her appetite and she is not eating well. Her 100 paid Medicare days will be up in about 4 wks and she is making little progress. If the skilled care facility at all liable for the complications she acquired while under their care? I feel like she would be doing a lot better if she had not had these complications.
