My Mom is currently admitted, and has no history in the area since we just moved. Most has been at Methodist, and though this info has been given on numerous occasions to staff, there has been no orders to get most recent records! MDs might find some useful information, especially if we are looking at a surgical plan in the near future. I generally have to be the one to initiate any calls for updates, which is fine, but have yet to meet any of the physicians that have made rounds, and may find communication more effective and direct even if a patient is coherent. I really don’t want to transfer unless necessary because she is no longer able to walk. Working with patients myself, I’m a bit perplexed, but giving the benefit of the doubt that they are running all tests needed since she is completely new to them. I just pray they look to gather any and all information, develop a good plan in a reasonable time frame and keep her comfortable in the meantime, and have effective communication amongst all staff there. This is a precious life, and hoping for great results!!! Nursing staff, for the most part, has been okay, though tonight I was questioned with some disregard at first, but face to face encounter helped a bit. Just want the absolute best outcome!
