...so today when I called to check on Dad from my second job, he was completely out of breath. When I asked why, he said he was putting his shirt back on from getting X rays. At first I thought he was confused, so I called the ALF and after multiple rings, someone finally answered.
When I asked about it, they did confirm that a tech had just left Dad's room, but no one could tell me who authorized this procedure or why. I literally have no idea WHY he was x-rayed. It doesn't seem like Hospice to authorize such an invasive procedure without notifying me first.
I know that the ALF has a doctor that makes rounds, so maybe that person authorized it, but I'm really annoyed. Now I have to take time from job # 2 to track down WHO authorized this procedure and why.
Isn't there a rule somewhere that if a person is not capable of making decisions on their own to notify the responsible party?
I'm so stressed. This is NOT a good place to be at a customer service job you hate, and I won't get answers until Tuesday thanks to the holiday. I swear I CAN'T win with this caregiving thing.
