I visit an 84 yr old man almost daily at nursing home. I have known him all my life. Sat I went to bring him some food and visit and he was acting very weird and confused etc. I pointed it out staff he was going to faint etc.
THEY said oh the Nurse knows. I waited for the nurse to come to his dining table. NEVER came over so I wheeled him over..said he is not well. "I can't do anything unless his family says to sent to the ER" I said WHO DID you call? She said NO ONE..I called his kids, they called and we went to Er (I went with him) and he has pnumonia and dehydrated. The amount of $ paid weekly for his care and IF I was not there he would have gotten worse. I even had to get him to his room and IN BED..no help...wiated for ambulance.
thanks for listening/ aks reading
