That’s how long it takes for a demented elder to be found on the floor of their live-alone apartment, be brought to the ED and have their life saved, somewhat dramatically.
It includes the time spent in the hospital being seen by several top-flite specialists and excellent, caring nurses. Time to eradicate infections, ameliorate cardiac dysrhythmias, reverse renal dysfunction and begin their rehabilitation.
It also includes their transfer to a rehabilitation hospital and ultimately their discharge home.
To the same apartment, to be found on the floor, and be brought back.
There are no words.
