ABSTRACT

I'm a nurse case manager helping to care for an elderly, terminally ill woman. Before she was hospitalized, she lived with her daughter and son-in-law, both of whom had visited daily since her admission several weeks ago. But after we told the patient's daughter that her mother needed to be placed in an extended care facility (ECF), the couple stopped visiting and haven't replied to my urgent phone messages about meeting to discuss nursing homes.

I'd hate to think that this couple is acting this way because the patient's Social Security check will be turned over to the ECF, but I suspect that's the case. Any advice?
