My father is currently in a Nursing facility in Texas. I reported several times to the Director of Nursing as well as the Administrator that my dad has not been getting some of his medications as well as he has Diabetes and a list of other health problems. When I see a problem with my father I always take report it to the facility right away. When I started to notice that the Administrator never got back to me after saying he'd investigate it or when he did get back to me, I started taking pictures and texting them to the Nursing Director and the Administrator. He asked me not to text him anymore concerning dad because of Hackers and to call or come by his office. I continued to take pictures and emailed them to him because I felt I needed some documentation. After a couple of pictures and emails, my emails were coming back undeliverable from the Administrator and the Nursing Director. I started calling the State. An Investigator from the State went out and did find the allegations were true, they were not giving my father is eyedrops for Glaucoma so they were cited. After that, the real problems began. My sister has an MPOA but lives in a different city. I'm in the same city as my dad and can get to the Nursing home faster if needed, and I visit dad every day, go to all of his doctor appointments. I recently obtained an MPOA since I am the only sibling here where my father is, but after I requested dad's medical records they started giving me problems, saying a doctor diagnosed dad with Vascular dementia and said dad was unable to make decisions in his own therefore my MPOA was not good. My sister came and brought a copy of her MPOA and requested dad's medical records and now is getting the runaround, her emails come back undeliverable it's been over a week since she requested dad's medical records. The Administrator sent me an email saying they would no longer give me any information or call me about anything having to do with my dad.
This is awful, I feel like he is bullying me and has cut me off from saying anything about my fathers well being or knowing anything. It is making me sick, I go home every night with a headache and a stomach ache. Not sure what to do now. The State just kind of lets the Nursing homes get away with things and they know it. This is the 3rd one he's been in and I don't want to keep moving him.
