My Grandmother who is progressing. She was in the hospital and they had to tie her down since she kept pulling the tubing. She got upset when the nurse rolled her on her side and tied both arms to on side of the bed facing the wall. She tried to get out of the restraint so I called the nurse no avail. Then she finnaly got one arm lose and scracthed me and I got the nurse to finally come and she was rude and hatful all night. Since the dr suggested a family member stay with her the first two nights. Since she got upset they gave her something to help her sleep and gave her to much. Is it right that the nurses seem to neglect her while I was there? Not to mention I called them three times and even went to the nurses station once when she had to go to the restroom. It took them an hour and me getting up set and my mom to call the hospital to the station also. The excuse was the call button was broken. Plus, I heard that they think they are hungery when they are not as part of this dis-ease, then it moves to not wanting to eat? Plus is there any resource to help me and my family understand this dis-ease more?

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
