Kim - When is Mom coming home. I've always thought patients are treated better when a family member is around a lot. It just seems to make a difference. Your Mom must be so proud of you for giving her so much attention.
Sharon - thanks always for my tea.
I'm enjoying CA much more than idol this year and I also liked the Voice.
We are shooting for bringin ma home Wednesday Ev.
This place isn't the greatest for patient care. They are understaffed and overbooked. You can call for someone to help and they might not show up for quite awhile if at all. I tried coming home yesterday for a bit to get the house ready for ma's homecoming and she called me to come back because they didn't bring her lunch or come in when she hit the call button.
Yesterday they had a new fella admitted. He was in his room YELLING for someone to help him go to the bathroom...saying please someone hurry, I really need to go....etc. The nurse in the hallway yelled to the aides..."someone go get him because I might choke him if I go in there"
I really can't even go to work and be comfortable that she's getting any care so this place isn't helping make anything easier on us. Won't ever recommend it, that's for sure. But the ROOMS are nice.
And the REHAB team is excellent. If someone is extremely mobile and doesn't need much help...it'd be fine.
And now I will go get ma her breakfast, coffee, meds, and get her to the pottie....and I'm paying 525 bucks a week for this!
I can do it at home for free!
