If your Gma is getting worse, is it possible that dementia is setting in? People with that or Alzheimers can get mean. Maybe if you can prove her to be incompetent, then someone else in the family can get a medical POA or Guardianship over Gpa & get him the care he needs. Talk to a family lawyer or social worker at the hospital.

^^^ Yeah, you'll probably have to prove her incompetent, then try for guardianship of your grandpa. I'm so sorry Harshy.

This is terrible. I don't think I wouldn't be able to do something about it, but they usually require a lot of proof of wrong doing before they will do something. If there are nurses that have witnessed it, they would be the best people to make a report and/or recommendation.
