My dad is in the hospital and needs to be transferred to a rehab. The social worker keep pushing my dad to a certain facility that my father had a bad experience and very far from our house. We called a few facilities that are closer to our house and they said that the social worker didn't send any paperwork. We tried to ask the social worker to send the paperwork, but she didn't want to do it, her reason was, there are so many pages to fax. We're stuck. What can we do?

Complain to management

Best Answer

you can report the problem to her boss and ask that they get involved. i always tell people to speak with the doctor or nurse who is taking care of your love one they can can lend assistance to you as well. remember that you have patient rights and your father's are being violated. <br />
<br />
be firm and respectful don't give in at anytime the reasons that she gave you are unacceptable and it is her job not her choice. best of luck.... There is a unit manager, charge nurse, don who can assist you as well. <br />

wishing your father a speedy recovery xoxo

I agree with Coyotedave. You have to go over her head and be firm, stand your ground. It's not about HER, it's about your Dad. She should be seriously reprimanded for her unprofessional, self serving behavior.

Best Answer

that's true, and she even got mad that we asked and looked for other rehabs, she said we were checking her job :-(

Best Answer

I worked for years trying to get people out of nursing homes etc. The social workers were all burnt out of their jobs. All I could do was go over their heads. I almost always won. Don't let her get away with this. You have every right to "check her job" esp when she isn't doing it right.
