Re: Catheters, Oxy, and Dementia...oh my!
I know you're right. Dad's primary doctor's nurse just called. She faxed the official diagnosis paperwork up and said she talked to them about the incident. She was told they did not give him an anesthetic because he didn't have a driver. It must have been painful. I told her I appreciated her calling and making them aware that they are also paying attention. Going to the grocery store and then making that call to the office manager.
The catheter is being removed tomorrow morning. My uncle is aware of all of this and has called in home health. That will be a battle but I'm ready...I think.
