My grandmother had been there a year and bed ridden
She was bleeding from her stomach ulcer because they gave her too much medication and my cousin happened to be there and asked for help for hrs while she threw up
So she went to Valley Hospital Las Vegas for care.
My father said they keep getting calls from these institutions to pay the bills.
My aunt just recieved a letter to pay the bill today which Valley hospital where she is at now and they cut her off last week for $26,000
Valley hospital is at $1000 a day
Senior Dimensions she has and Medicaid
Still has culinary insurance and pension but very little money
She's had that for decades
$1200 a month
$5000 a month at Desert Lane, which is incredible in itself as they don't keep that place too sanitary
He said him and one aunt of mine are getting the threats from these places
My aunt was told that they would put a lien on her property and seize her property if she didnt come up with the money
Their saying that she's their mother and its their responsibility, etc
An attorney friend said they are not liable to pay
So as you can see for middle income people thats quite hefty
Now they have her on morphine, probably to shut her up as my grandmother has quite the temper sometimes
Very upset at whats going on
Dr Osawa is the prescribing dr
And Desert Lane urine odor is very strong
she tube feeds and cant go to the bathroom on her own
my family has been paying for the bills but are getting out of hand
What can we do ?
Thanks as always
