Topic: Frustrated with nursing home regarding blood tests
I just need to vent here.
My mom lives in a nursing home due to her many ailments. She is scheduled for her second round of chemo this Wednesday. The nursing home lost the requisitions for the CA 19-9 blood draw she is supposed to have on Monday, and they have written in their records to do it every two weeks, on a Tuesday. I fought with the nurse yesterday and she is insisting they will do it Tuesday, but thw oncologist said it has to be done 2 days before the chemo, which would be Monday. Argh! Now I have to try to find time to call the oncologist and get the new requisitions faxed over tomorrow morning, but I have to get my car fixed in the morning, then take my aunt to a doctor's appointment.
I'm just so frustrated.
Thanks so much for letting me get that out!
I hope everyone has a great week!
