My mother is in a nursing home, she had a sore on her left foot. Nursing home told us that they covered it so that her houses shoe wouldn't rub against it. This was at the beginning of Dec. In Mar. they told us that she needed to go to the wound Dr. When he unwrapped her foot. Their was a hole in the side of her foot and it was badly infected. He told me that it was a pressure sore. Now my mom has to go every week to get it cleaned out. Nursing homes never told us anything about it. The dr. at the home said that when he saw it, it was a little sore. The wound dr. said that it had been like that for a while. We trusted the home and now the Dr. and the home won't talk about it. We have POA, home stated that their dr. has the rights to make decisions for our mom, without talking to us first.
