Diverticulitis, blood clot, and jaundice
My mom was admitted to ER and kept for diverticulitis. Treated with IV antibiotics and pain meds for 3 days. She developed a blood clot in RUE and moved to ICU. She was ordered on OOB with goals of amb. but has only amb. Bedbathroom and has been immobile otherwise. When I went to visit last night she was extremely jaundiced and had extreme edema in RUE and LE. The am doc advised 3 more days of hospitalization but then the pm doc said she could be d/c following day after anticoagulant injection and rx for hormone replacement. I'm concerned about the jaundice, edema, and blood clot. If she is d/c today she will be here for 2 more days and then driving 16 hours home. Is there anything I can have them check for before d/c her. I've had a bad experience with the care at this hospital and am concerned with their thoroughness of treatment.
