She is in a nursing home where they have Doctors on their panel. When they go to the nursing home to check the patients we are not informed. All responses are handled by the nurses. My Sister went above heads and called the doctors directly yesturday, the main one was the psychiatrist to ask if he could put her back on an anti-depressant - he scolded her for calling him and going outside the normal protocol of the nurses only calling. He said he could not do anything without seeing her and speaking with the primary care doctor. The primary care doctor does not return the calls. Only speaks thru the nurses. We cannot remove her from the nursing home as she cannot walk anymore. She had 2 TIA's in August and went downhill after that, then she had another seizure that lasted about 3 minutes Thursday at about 3 AM. Since then, she does not stop screaming.
As far as a neurologist, I do not think one has seen her recently. That I will take up with the nurses and see if it is possible. Hard to diagnose her since we cannot speak with her or get an answer from her if we ask a questions. I hate this dam disease and what it has done to her. Scary thing - she had 9 sisters - including her, 4 of them have been diagnosed with AD, one of them passed away 2 years ago.
