ted303,tetra,vintage, I wish I could say that everything was going smoothly, I cannot. The bed is actually too small lengthwise and widthwise. Also, my turn schedule is not being adhered to. Subsequently, I have developed pressure sores.
The Internet connection is not secure. It is an open coffee shop style Wi-Fi network. In my opinion, it is very vulnerable to hackers. For a long time, they would not let me my computer. I still have had to make a non-responsibility agreement with the facility, so that I can have it.
Bummer. I’m so sorry, electricguy. Those who haven’t been in nursing homes would think that “complaining” about the situation to some appropriate person should do the trick. But the red tape and levels of deceit in the nursing home industry are insidious and extensive. My thoughts are with you, hoping for you to get some practical relief.
electricguy, Sorry to hear that things haven't gone smoothly for you Without knowing the nursing home routine, alls I can say is be very insistent on what your needs are you know what you need better than anyone. I would have a chat with the staff & forcefully put your points & thoughts to the staff at the nursing home. Tell them the truth your health, form & well being depends on your needs being met. Hope things improve for you, stay in touch & keep the spirit up as much as you can.
electricguy , I'll be thinking of you, a small, flitty creature near your bed that cannot quit be seen. I know you are able to work on your own behalf but you circumstances will wear down Supergimp. Stay strong and I hope they have an air mattress for you. Medical ghouls stalk us all!
That's very reassuring to hear Tetra, as I have been trying to gather as much information as possible from people who have been there bought the t shirt! Ya I have a list of my care routine at home to be carried out in hospital as it has severed me well over the years. I think in hospitals they oh ya we are the pros, but we are the ones living it so we know best what mattress etc that we need. Again Thanks for the reassurance, it helps a lot. Take Care & il fill you in on how I get on.
I saw a news article yesterday stating anesthesia is less effective (by a lot) with regular marijuana users. I use MJ for sleep so it's possible my experience of being aware during the procedure is unusual. It's impossible to know, of course, but I appreciated knowing what was going on. I think you are smart to investigate as much as you can. being on a mattress sees critical for us, although the procedure itself is quite short, maybe 20-25 minutes.
I am finding it is taking many days to completely rehydrate. It's not so much a matter of drinking enough, but that it takes time for all the cells to reabsorb their natural load.
Just so I understand correctly. Your saying you go in to have a colostomy done never having had anything done to your bowels before and you have a stoma in 25 minutes? You poop out your belly in less than a half hour?
Hi they are Viking warrior. As if your injury isn't bad enough, the b*stards that run the care facility want to grind you down. I hope the chief executive falls under a bus, and some of the more unscrupulous nurses develop some horrible disease. Let them see what it's like being in a state of vulnerability and having to rely on others for assistance.
