Quote from: mystictechgal on May 20, 2019, 09:22:37 PMMy 96yo friend was recovering beautifully from the hip replacement surgery he had two weeks ago — that's after recovering completely from his broken neck (C-1). Then he tried to walk to the car to go to lunch using the standard-issue, small wheel, aluminum walker they insist you use after hip replacement surgery. (I gather that they fear that the larger-wheeled up-grade walkers will get away from them.)His walker caught on an uneven patch of sidewalk at his graduated living facility. (He has one of their condos.) It pitched forward, he went backward, breaking the femur on his recently replaced hip. He spent 3 hours in surgery where they reassembled his femur and wrapped it in heavy-grade piano wire half-way down his thigh and replaced the hip shaft with a longer one; he had to receive 3 units of blood and spent 3 days in the hospital (as opposed to going home — to his own home — the day following the initial replacement surgery.He now has a UTI, which has affected his electrolyte balance and has made him confused, and is living in the rehabilitation wing of his facility. Grrrr.The facility claims that they always re-level their sidewalks after the winter [achoo]bullshit[/achoo] — this one was "undoubtedly on the list". They have also spray painted all uneven spots bright yellow (but haven't actually fixed any of them).My friend is blaming himself. His daughter, also my friend, who was with him at the time, is blaming herself. I'm just royally PISSED OFF on their behalf. This sucks and it isn't the fault of either one of them.
