Had a family member at Providence Health Care in Thomaston, Ga. I was immediately told "we do not allow sitters with patients at night."
I was never told by Providence staff what poor condition my family member was in. I was told by someone outside the facility that we should probably call in Hospice. When I asked Providence staff about Hospice, they admitted they had done all they could do for my family member. Why had they not told me?
As I was inquiring about Hospice care, I was told by Providence Staff that they do not allow our local Thomaston Hospice personnel to service patients in their facility. Before I was able to complete paperwork in order to secure Hospice services from an angency out of town, my family member died.
Some folks are working as hard as they can to over compensate for those that just don't have the drive or the intellect to do so. Patients are left unattended many times sitting in urine or feces in the front hallway for at least an hour! It is reported and adminstration says it will be taken care of but that is just to appease the complainant. The kicker for many of us: when the power went off due to a storm a couple of weeks ago, the patients/residents went with out power, oxygen, etc from 2-7 pm. All in the name of capitalism and no care for the sanctity of life......
