I am a parent of a deceased adult child that was diagnosed as having cerebral palsy 10 years after the decision was made to have him reside in an Adult Rehab Facility from age 17-24 after suffering with pneumonia along with cerebral palsy, epilepsy and asthma. His physical & mental state was a threat, and the state felt that I could not attend to him being at home. He was institutionalized from age 10-13 at several Childrens' Neurological Facilities After numerous missed appointments due to lack of staff to accompany him to the medical clinics he visited for his medical treatments (neurology, pulmonary, dentist and podiatrist, just to name a few), I had him removed from the facility and brought him home. His demeanor, care and move home brought a miraculous change in him, was acknowledged and noticed by medical professionals, family and friends. I was told that me taking him home contributed to his living longer. There are still unanswered questions as to why replacing a feeding tube, which doctors felt was unneccesary to replace or inform me and thereby resulted in his demise at age 32 of aspiration pneumonia, in November, 2002. Mind you, he was given only medication intravenously, and that was stopped 2 days before his demise. He was looking so well, my mom (now deceased) asked the medical staff when we could take him home. The usual response was it would have to be discussed with the doctor. Never saw any doctor, took my people home, returned to hospital and my son was moved to the terminally ill section of hospital, no calls to home or cell phone. As I waited to speak with anyone about his transport, I was told the room my son occupied before his demise was needed by another patient. After thinking about the place where he was, it came to my rememberance that this was the same floor and the same room my dad passed away after bypass surgery; unattended, no hook-ups to any machines, monitors, nothing. He was left there to die because the surgeon said they couldn't stop the by pass to stop an aneurysm seen while doing the bypass. Now the situation with my mom was her left unattended in the restroom; she had dementia and tried to care for herself, slipped and a doctor came in and saw her wrapped around the toilet in pain; results of a fractured hip. She was operated on, stay in hospital for a few days, transferred to a rehab facility that we had well known associates, kindred and acquaintences. She healed and a bedsore came on her back just above her anus, from not being repositioned as timely as she should have; the results her demise. We had to sue for wrongful death for all matters with our family members and it would be a shame for this to happen to this family. Praying for Divine Intervention and this action come to pass on or before court date!
