My boyfriend and I are about to make a tough decision about what to do with his mother who lives out of state. She is quickly deteriorating from Vasculitis. She is now unable to care for herself. Can anyone say how difficult it is to transfer a hospital patients to another state so they can be closer to family?

My father is in Texas with my sister and she does not want to care for him anymore so she took him to the hospital and left him saying he is crazy and they can't keep him so they will transport him to a nursing home stating he is not in his right mind. I live in Charlotte. How do I take charge of his health care and have him transported here with me? Please help

I should mention also that She is currently in a hospital. We feel the doctors are not providing the appropriate care she needs to get her health back. She has no family in the state she lives therefore we can't monitor her progress. She is only 63!! Not sure how much medicare or medicaid can help. How do we take control of some of her assets so we don't go into financial debt from her medical bills? Do we bring her to where we live and put her in another hospital where we can watch over her or try to do it from a distance? How do we get started?

I used ACC Medlink when I needed to have my family member transported into a facility and they were great. First off, they constantly followed up with me. When I called just to make a simple inquiry, they called me back and sent me e-mails; they really wanted me to be as knowledgeable about their process as much as possible. When I made a reservation, they sent me everything I needed over e-mail and I appreciated that. On the day of the pick-up they called to let us know they were on their way and they'd be five minutes late. Overall, I just really appreciated the level of customer service. The transport trip went great, no complaints what so ever. Even the facility my family member was dropped off in complimented how great ACC Medlink was. Afterwards, ACC called to follow up and make sure everything was okay, and that just shows how much they care about the people they help. I was a little surprised by the prices but if that is what it costs for the excellent service I received, then so be it. I definitely recommend them!

It is probably too late to take control of her assets if she is going to apply to medicaide there is now a look back period of 5 years-but after her own money is spent down then she will be able to get medicaide but you are not responsible for her medicial bills and will not be in debt for her medicial bills,after her money is gone she will be able to get medicaide for herself. I would contact an elder lawyer who can give you information about medicare and medicaide so no mistakes are made that would hurt in the future. If she has to be in a nursing home it is best to have her near where you live so you can be part of her care plan.A private ambulance company would probably transport her to a hospital but you would be able to ask different companies and see what the expense would be but the first step would be the elder lawyer who would be able to advise you.

I would like to try and help a friend of mine. He is bedbound. I live in Georgia he lives in Florida. He does not need hospice, he just needs around the clock care. He doesn't have a lot of money. He pays for his care now, but it's not 24 hours a day. He makes on average $3,200 a month. That isn't much money to pay monthly bills and caregivers. Anyway, does anyone know a safe way, and reasonable (cost wise) way he could be transprted to Georgia? Any help would be appreciated.

The charge would depend on the level of care needed during transport.
These are the rates from Utah:
(a) Ground Ambulance - $696.00 per transport.
(b) Advanced EMT and EMT-IA Ground Ambulance - $919.00 per transport.
(c) Paramedic Ground Ambulance - $1,344.00 per transport.
(d) Ground Ambulance with Paramedic on-board - $1,344.00 per transport if:
(i) a dispatch agency dispatches a paramedic licensee to treat the individual;
(ii) the paramedic licensee has initiated advanced life support;
(iii) on-line medical control directs that a paramedic remain with the patient during transport; and
(iv) an ambulance service that interfaces with a paramedic rescue service and has an interlocal or equivalent agreement in place, dealing with reimbursing the paramedic agency for services provided up to a maximum of $286.68 per transport.
PLUS the mileage.
(4) Mileage Rate-(a) $31.65 per mile or fraction thereof.

We moved my mom after surgery from Ohio to Texas with a company called National Medical Transport. They were wonderful! Two drivers and an RN in a motor home. Very professional and attentive. Not inexpensive but well worth it to have her close by.

Wish you luck

What if a nursing home fails to comply with the discharge when requested by the patient and the family? Do they need to do this in a timely matter? It has been 3 weeks. One in a hospital two in a nursing home. They do not complete the discharge paper work and then charts need to be updated again.
