To make a very long story shorter, my mom had a bad fall at home three weeks back and is now in a rehab facility in New Jersey. This facility also offers extended care at the same location. My family (dad and sisters) have been increasingly pressured by the administrator, staff and social workers to take pre-emptive measures to move Mom to extended care with no real PT ever since the first looming Medicare coverage deadline. We already received a 6-day extension, and we are aggresively seeking coverage for more days. My mom has a long diaganosis including a broken femur. Today, we saw her orthodedist who recommended particular "programs of therapy", and he removed her leg brace so she could expand excersises (non-weight bearing at thus time). Her arm cast was removed so she may begin rotator cuff therapy (clavical was broken). She also got the go ahead for the toliet and shower (with seat). When we arrived back to the rehab from the doctor's office, we hurrily gathered in Mom's room by her therapist. "Whis doesnt change anything" he said, "it's all restorative therapy" he said pointing at the doctor's report. So I called the doctor's office to confirm. Bottom line is, the staff at this center is unwilling to work with my mom and us, and are essentially threarening to create a negative (status quo) report to the insurance company, and essentially misrepresent the orthopedist's report. We are all now under great stress with the next end of coverage day being next Thursday, 5/4. The next report will be submitted on Monday, 5/1. All words of wisdom are welcome. BTW: after some post-trauma dellirium, Mom is very coherent. There are many vacancies at this sub-acute facility. Mom is 87.
