I don't know how I am going to handle my aunt/mom/nanny's death. She told me today she's ready to go and just wants it to be over. She is at hospice now. She has bed sores all over her back and bottom from the nursing home she was in. They are very bad. I am calling the state to review the nursing home in the morning.

Is she mobile? Or do you suspect neglect?

Hugs. I work in a nursing home and I would be livid if my people had sores like that.

She has stage 4 lung cancer and cancer of the hip. She is so frail she HAS to be turned. I am crying and so pissed off.

Im sorry about what you are going through. We had that problem with my grandma.She was only in the nursing 3 months when she passed of a staff infection she got from a bed sore caused by neglect of the nursing home(she had 7 types of staff in the one sore).  Unfortunately here in Texas their is a cap of $250,000 in lawsuits against nursing homes, which is more than what it would have cost to take to court!

I have known others that have been in the same one. Ended up getting bad bed sores. I hope this can shape them up or I will be the final call to shut them down.
