Costly dementia care failing to keep Oregon seniors safe

Your loved ones may be at risk! If you have a family member in a facility of any kind, please visit often. If circumstances do not allow, hire an advocate. I was researching memory care complaints at some local facilities here in Southern Oregon and found this article. I believe the neglect/abuse is under reported just simply because this population cannot advocate for themselves...

Abuse cases were more than twice as common in memory care as ordinary assisted living, The Oregonian/OregonLive found.

There is alot of talk from people complaining about how we are asked to stay home to slow the spread of Covid 19. Many even say it is an overreaction. The first question I ask you to ask yourself is, How many people do you know with Asthma, COPD, emphysema, Reactive airway disease, etc? How many people do you know that are elderly? In my immediate family, there are 3 people that fit this category. Covid 19 is extremely contagious! A huge number will get it and recover just fine. However, if everyone gets sick all at once then alot of people will die. Our hospitals were at max capacity prior to Covid 19. We have a huge retirement community here. Please do your part and help slow the spread. Our hospitals are full with Covid quarantine that is not being reported by the news. It is here in our valley!

This is the sign that is posted at one of the local hospitals. It has been mostly at critical capacity for the last year. We are in a major upcoming healthcare crisis due to the lack of resources. Unfortunately, this is likely to only be the beginning as the Baby Boomer generation continues to age. One of the consequences to being at critical capacity is that patients are being discharged from the hospital before they are ready. This causes many issues such as re-hospitalization, further illness/injuries, and even death. If you or a loved one are experiencing illness, please don't wait until it is too late.

Yet another success story...

A patient called me after getting admitted to the hospital. I showed up bedside. After helping the patient navigate the hospital system, the hospital planned on releasing the patient to a skilled nursing facility. The patient had experienced nausea and vomiting for a week in the hospital and yet even with the doctors knowing of this they did nothing other than give the patient nausea meds. The patient transferred to the facility and continued to vomit. Upon reviewing the medications it was evident that a new med was the culprit. The patient decided to hold the med for a couple days to verify the suspicion. Sure enough, it was the medications. Although the patient complained over and over to the doctors, no one would listen. If you or your loved one are experiencing similar things, don't give up! Keep asking questions. When in doubt, hire a professional patient advocate.

One more example of why people need a patient advocate...

My 4 year old son started with a cough about a week ago. On Sunday he had a decline in breathing. I took him in to urgent care to have him evaluated. They did a chest xray and gave an antibiotic perscription to hold on to for 3 days just in case he got worse to use it. Yesterday was day 2 after urgent care. His breathing had became even more difficult even with breathing treatments. I decided to get a 2nd opinion from his pediatrician. (Who I trust)
His pediatrician evaluated and agreed that his illness was most likely viral and would not need antibiotics but that he was dehydrated and should get some IV fluids at th ER. I took my son to the ER and he started to have low oxygen readings. The ER doctor diagnosed him with pneumonia and stated it was most likely bacterial and he needed to be started on antibiotics. They planned on discharging him home after giving him his first dose. I questioned the ER doctor about his oxygen being low. She stated she was not concerned. Normal oxygen readings are 90% or greater. My son was at 81% while awake and would decrease as he would fall asleep. The MD insisted and tried to intimidate me by belittling my medical knowledge. She sent the RN in to discharge my son home. At that point, I called my son's pediatrician to notify them that the ER wanted to discharge him home with low oxygen. I notified the RN that I was not happy and that I had just called the pediatrician and would wait to talk with them before I agreed to discharge. Within minutes the attending house doctor came in and again tried to force me to discharge. I turned to her and asked, "Do you consider an oxygen reading of 81% stable?" She then told me that his o2 was only 85% and not 81%. I argued with her stating it has been hovering low 80s when he sleeps and to review the monitor history. I also told her that I called his pediatrician and was waiting to talk with her before I agreed to discharge. She walked out of the room to return within minutes with news that they would be admitting. We are still here in the pediatric unit and more than likely will not discharge home until this Friday due to him not being medically stable. The pediatrician discontinued antibiotics because he has RSV and did not need them. If I had listened to the RN and MD from the ER my son could have possibly died from respiratory failure at home last night. It is so important that patients ask questions and when in doubt second or third opinions. If you don't have the medical knowledge to advocate for your self, then hire someone. This story is a perfect example to why one may need an advocate... Unfortunately, I see stories like this almost daily. Don't give up! There is help!

Navigating your health care needs one step at a time.

According to a recent study from Johns Hopkins University, the third leading cause of death in America is due to preventable medical error. Healthcare providers strive to take the best care possible of their patients, but are hindered by a fragmented and restrictive healthcare systems. As a nurse, I have witnessed many human errors over the years. This has left patients spinning with confusion, disabilities, chronic pains, chronic illnesses, and overall decrease in their quality of life. In the worst case, even death.Navigating the health care system is tiresome, even for experienced professionals. In times of illness it can be daunting. Imagine being able to have a professional healthcare advocate assist you in your healthcare needs. To give patients peace of mind knowing that they can trust that they are in good hands. An acute or chronic illness can leave one feeling overwhelmed, helpless, lost, fearful amongst many other feelings.As a patient advocate, I work for you. I can be by your side to ask your doctors and other caregivers the right questions. It’s like having a spokesperson for your health.
