112. Exactly, and which is why I would hold the family
more responsible than the patient.


I wonder how the family would feel knowing that their mom/grandmother/sister/whatever had fallen and laid unattended for some time because of this order.

If I were the administrator of this facility, I would tell the family it cannot be honored. If they insisted, I would ask them to find another facility.

Nursing homes don't have to take patients they deem to be a danger.

My MIL was turned down by one, in fact, because of her history of violence.
