due to all the things that have been going on with my mom at the nursing home, and getting the biopsy results back proving that my mom never had shingles, which she was treated for without a dr every taking a look at her, i called the ombudsman and am thinking about having them start attending care plan meetings with me. i also called the nursing home and requested all my moms records including all nursing notes, eating records (she has went 3 weeks without eating, cna's document but didnt tell anyone, not even mothers dr) and anything that has my mothers name on it and anything written that concerns anything to do with my mom. i lied and told them i made appt with her dr for the two of us to sit down and go over everything and see if we can find a link between any past or present meds that may have caused the hives, but really, i want to go over them and make sure everything has been documented properly and see if there are things in there that i am not aware of. so here is the question, how do i keep them from retaliating and finding some trumped up reason for her to lose her bed, or even worse, someone do something that would land me in prison. my mom i unable to communicate to us if someone is out of line with her, we would only know if we saw physical signs. now, let me say this, for the most part this nursing home has done ok, not perfect, none are, but ok, i have found some very serious offenses in the past that i called for action to be taken (whoever responible for the incident to be fired) and it was done on the spot, but this last episode involved a dr and malpratice in my opinion and i need to protect my mom but i dont want to move her, i want them to get rid of the nurse that made the phone call that started all of this in the first place. has anyone ever gotten advocate or ombudsman involved and then had to deal with retaliation of any kind? i need help with this.
