Informed today by a patient, whose husband is in Mercy Medical Center and about to be discharged, that she attempted to find a local nursing home to take him. She was told he was too “complicated” for them to take care of. Evergreen Family Medicine’s MD basically told her that he would get him accepted . . . but then sheepishly came back claiming they will discharge the patient to home care only. Then that doctor was reported as saying “he just can’t stay here to die.” Mercy already screwed up earlier when they sent him home after an ER visit when he should have been admitted due to pneumonia . . . guess what? He did get admitted two days later with an infection that required multiple specialists to help treat. Poor care and so much more.
