She is skin and bones. She's lost thirty pounds within one year. She is soaking wet every time we go to visit her; through her depends, slacks, the foam pad that she sits on in her wheel chair.
We had an advocate check into it and they were told that she needs to be changed/checked every two hours. That lasted about one week. Now, they are back to the same way.
I believe that she only gets good care is when a family member is there.
Yesterday, one of her son's was with her from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. (everybody has to sign in and out). Her grand daughter (50 yrs. old) arrived about 15 minutes later. The grand daughter said her grandmother was soaking wet through all of her clothes, depend and pad she sits on.
The nursing home says it's because she takes a diuretic. Seems like after a while the diuretic needs to be reduced.
I think she is being neglected because the nursing home resents the family getting involved.
There is more to all of this.
Does anybody have any ideas of what should be done?
