The first time I visited Lexington rehab was with my father. The physical therapists were wonderful. They pushed him to get stronger each day they were with him. HOWEVER,, this review is not on my Fathers stay but my Mother’s. She had a broken hip and needed to get the leg moving again. Again, the physical therapists were wonderful, they pushed my mother to her limits every day.
My complaint is with the administration and possible the nurses who administer there drugs.
After a full 10 days or so, we had a meeting with the administration staff. At that meeting we talked about Goals that would be met. My mistake was not asking for a second meeting to see if goals were being met. In my eyes, it was clear they were not and I trusted the staff did too. All of a sudden after about 3 weeks, my mother was discharged. I tried to appeal the decision with Medicare and Lexington sighting that goals had not been met and in fact 2 physical therapists said she was not ready for discharge. Medicare did not step up and neither did Lexington. Medicare said that my mother would stay at Lexington while the appeal was going through. Again, I thought they were taking care of this, only to find out, that her stay was out of pocket,, so be careful reader, what your promised, ask questions.
The last week or so my mother was at Lexington, she was sleeping a lot. When we talked, she was looking through me, not at me. I truly believe something was going on with her drugs. Let’s face it, how hard is it to take care of an old woman when she sleeps the day away. Of course I have no proof of this, but it is strange that within 24 hrs of coming home, my mom was pretty much herself again.
