He has been in this facility since last October. He is 61 with early onset dementia and he is difficult to care for. He is ambulatory and he wanders into other peoples rooms, and has gotten combative a few times. They sent him into the next state 45 minutes away to a hospital to help with the behavior, said they would take him back, but then refused to do so. The hospital says his behavior is controlled.
Now the hospital is trying to send him to a substandard nursing home 45 minutes away from home. (Substandard as defined and documented by the state of Michigan).
I’m trying to get the state to force them to take him back, since this is clearly a violation of the law. So far I’m not getting much traction.
Has anyone else successfully fought and won in a case like this? Any suggestions welcome.
