Poor Mama. I thought she'd make it to 100. She wasn't ready to die. I saw her 2 days before her death on June 3rd and she looked and acted pretty good.
The autopsy report finally has been completed. It stated that her death was a result of complications from the accident that broke her leg. It happened on February 7th. Below is a copy of the email that I received from Linda, the manager at Bedford Place. The caregivers involved were Holly and a young guy, Mark. Mark went to the hospital with Mom on the day of her scheduled surgery. (The anesthesiologist canceled the surgery because a blood test showed that she had low thyroid levels.) Mark accompanied Mom again to an appointment with Dr Harger. He spent the time playing with his phone and sniffling. I told him to get some tissues for himself. He did not seem well trained at all. I didn't want to pursue any legal action before because Mom was happy at Bedford. A move would have been traumatic to her.
Now, however, I am trying to find a good lawyer to see about filing suit against the home. The 2 staff admittedly caused the accident. The home's website states they take care of dementia patients. So, I think I have a valid case Below I have inserted the email from the manager and a page from their current website. The whole web page wouldn't fit into the space on the blog so a bit is missing from the right side. But, you can read enough to get the idea or you can go to the link: http://www.bedfordresidence.com/#!amenities/cee5
