Nightmare at the nursing home
My mom has been gone now for five years this month Nov. 20 TH her birthday was on Nov. 21, she was in a nursing home that I worked at.Not a very good idea to have a family member in.Many bad things happened there, when I was questioning things they got very guarded, and it put my job at risk, I had been an employee for 20 years. My mom suffered a terrible burn from a coffee spill, which they denied,abuse from letting her go to activities bruises from them toileting her with the EZ stand as her paralyzed left hand was not useable, got pinched between the bathroom door and the EZ stand,She also got left on the toilet for two hours, while being attached to the EZ stand. and no call light as they did not make one available to her, and if I was not on my break from my assisted living job, she would have been there a lot longer than she was,i have a really hard time talking about this, this is not what I want for any one, it makes me sick to my stomach, now I must tell you what was my moms demise, my mom suffered a stroke on her left side, which means she has her mind but her left side is paralyzed, but her brain is in tact,so she knew every thing that was going on,any way in the end of her nightmare,some fool put a pair of reg knee highs nylons on her, which she never wore,she had them stockings on for a total of 12 hours, and they were on her paralyzed leg that long which made it very painful for her, where a blood clot formed, and also she had sepsis, which ultimately killed her, a very painful death, all due to the poor care she had received in that nursing home!!
