so I'm out for the day. MIL fell out of the bed at the nursing home earlier. Sigh. She was knocked unconscious and I think her arm's broken. They did some tests and told me to call back or come in a couple of hours. It's been 3 hours now, so I'm going to head over and see what's going on.

See you guys next week, if the logging-on fairy is still with me! lol Have a great weekend!

Never mind!!

I drove to the hospital and they already discharged her. So I drove to the nursing home and she was resting. Her arm isn't broken, and she didn't completely lose consciousness. I was all freaking out..!


But she did fall off the bed, reaching for her bedside table. It's against federal law to put bedrails up in nursing homes unless ordered by a dr. I left a message with the director for the dr to call us, we're going to request that they put up bedrails for her own safety. She used to fall out of her own bed at home so I guess it's no surprise she fell out at the nursing home. But I think the bedrails would give her a safeguard in case she needs to reach for something. Whew!

Thanks everyone who replied. It's been a rough, rough road with her. I'm hoping things start to improve soon!
