My 84 year old grandmother went into a skilled facility for rehab Jan 2018 after she burned her legs and was transferred to the same nursing home as resident due to her Alzheimer's getting progressively worse. While being a resident there the NH Dr. ordered an abdominal CT Scan 3 weeks ago for her because she had been complaining about stomach pains. NH Dr. stated the CT Scan revealed colon cancer. Uhhmm how does a general practitioner make a cancer diagnosis without a biopsy??? He advised hospice, told us to make her comfortable and prepare for the end. Ok, this Dr is at the facility 3 hours a week, but you are making a cancer diagnosis???? From that point on, it has been a comedy of errors in how this situation was handled. I had to demand that my grandmother be referred to a GI Dr. to get a colonoscopy and biopsy. The way the medical field treats the elderly is criminal!
