My brother has been hospitalized for 2 weeks. He was diagnosed as having vertigo. He has been dizzy, nauseous and bed ridden for all of that time. The doctors claim that everything else (mri, blood tests, etc) check out fine. They have a switched him from one steroid to a different steroid and still nothing. He has only been seen by a specialist once since he was admitted, thus hasn't received much physical therapy. His family keeps being told the physical therapy is done as outpatient care. Does this sound like normal hospital protocol? We want to get him transferred but the hospital is basically saying we'd encounter this with any hospital. We feel like how can he get better with just meds, if clearly they are not working? We feel like more physical therapy is needed in order to see real improvement. Is this unreasonable?
