Sorry I hadn't been around much. Long story short (I hope easter-lol), my mother fell Feb 11, we took her to the hospital, she stayed 6 days, she was transfered to a nursing home for rehab. Two days after she got there, they had her so doped up on oxycodine that she couldn't even sit up. We'd been working on getting her medicaid so we could get here out and closer to us; it was a 60 mile drive one way. March 31, the nursing home called and said she was having a seizure and sent her to an out of state hospital. Before my sister and I could get, there the hospital called and said she had a large blood clot from her knee to her ankle, her leg was ice cold and hard, she had an UTI and was dehydrated to t he point her skin was clammy. Nursing home said nothing of this. Mom died April 5. There was nothing to the doctors could do. She was 88 and very weak.

So we are talking to a lawyer and trying to get her medical records from the nursing home.

Thanks for listening and it's good to be back dishing!! I had no idea how much I missed all the gossip! easter-lol

Welcome back CathyJane, you have been missed.

I had an almost identical situation with my own mother and her nursing home in 2008 and offer my sincere condolences at this very sad time.
