Re: “My Friend Antonio

THESE so called care facilities received from medicare around 5000 pet month per resident. We looked into it. We had to pay out if pocket if my mom was to stay around 6000. This did not include medicine. It is outrageous how they treat the elderly. My mother did not go into one of these homes. We took care of her. My two sister's my nieces , my daughter's. It took ie. She had to stay in one temporarily due to the hospitals releasing patients that really should mot be released. Some of the staff was great. The Dr was another story. I think that author of this article is just as upset like I was . No one listens. I reported the hospital , the Dr, when my mother was there due to her not receiving all her meds. I asked to see her medical sheet to see when they had given her her medication .But they failed to have it I didn't even realize that they Stopped my mother's medication, my mother was the one that told me. she was on Prozac For years and failed to give that to her. THE doctor failed to order it. I filled out a formal complaint with Medicare they did research which took them six months and their answer to me was well he didn't stop all that her medication. I think the public needs to see what really goes on in these homes who knows it may be you next.

one last note I was told by the doctor then my mother fail to thrive that's how they categorize someone who is bedridden elderly where has a chronic illness that doesn't get better now I'm not saying all doctors but a lot of doctors in these facilities don't really care. I was even told by the person who took and reviewed my complaint with Medicare it happens more the Not. and she also told me everyone whether you're in a regular hospital or one of these care facilities needs an advocate somebody to stand up for you in the with the hospital staff and doctors.
