6. What does her Doctor think? If her Doctor believes she should be in the hospital
but the insurance won't allow it, then she should find another Doctor, because he isn't fighting for her

If it has been a month, and things aren't better, just on those grounds alone, at the minimum she should get a second opinion

good luck
