I was shocked to see her toenails are badly deformed...very thick and the nails are twisted at angles despite us paying for her to see a chiropodist every month since she went in there in November 2009. All the nursing staff and doctors are shocked and it throws questions about her care. Her new key worker was with her and she told me that she raised questions about Mum's recent care when she took over but that the manager of the home is verbally abusive and intimidates her so she fails unable to raise issues.
Despite lack of sleep and dealing with my 20 year olds Autistic severely challenging behaviour..he is hitting himself in the face and not sleeping again I managed to get them to keep her in over night.
They wanted to send her back today. The ward manager said there was no way she should under the circumstances but Social Services tried their level best to do nothing. They denied having received his referral and said they had left messages for me that she woudl have to go back to the home none of which I received [familiar SS tactics] while we sat at the hospital waiting all afternoon for them to come and see Mum! So I called the Safeguarding lead who I had spoken to this morning and the Discharge Coordinator came to see us...he was very kind...and they agreed to safeguard her and keep her in for now while I have been given brochures to use to try and find her a new home!
Then the doctor came from the rehab ward and told me that the paramedics report states that she was pushed by another resident who is known to be aggressive. It is a large home and there were no carers at the end of the home it happened. carers downstairs, it said, heard shouting and a thud and went up to find Mum lying in a large pool of blood with this resident standing over her.
I was shocked.
I have emailed the Safeguarding Lead and Discharge Coordinator tonight and have also emailed our local community police officer who supports me with Ali when i cannot cope with his behaviour or get support from Social Services. Does anyone have any advice how I should proceed???
