On Father’s 06/21/2020 Day my dad was taken to Dignity Health Community Hospital of San Bernardino because he felt very weak, had been coughing for a few days and had fallen on his way to the bathroom early that morning and hit himself pretty hard on his face.
He was taken to ER where they ran tests on him and found that he had Penumonia. My dad was tested for Covid19 that day and a couple days later the test results showed he was positive for the virus.
A couple days later the hospital decided to transfer my father to Riverwalk Post Acute Nursing home in Riverside, CA. While at that nursing home they would only let us see him or talk to him via FaceTime.
My dad passed away on 06/26/2020 all alone of Acute cardiorespiratory arrest caused by Covid-19. I am outraged that a hospital would send a 87 year old man with full blown pneumonia and covid19 to recover at a group home. They should have kept him in ICU at the hospital to monitor him just in case he needed a ventilator to breathe. I had talked to him a little the night before he passed away and he was having a lot of trouble breathing and couldn’t even lift his arms and was barely able to move his head.
They pretty much sent my father to die at that group home and I don’t understand why?
