My aunt died today, apparently of neglect by a rehab facility in Florida. She was rushed to an ICU with infected bedsores, and the hospital was so shocked by the state they found her in that they’re initiating some kind of criminal investigation into the facility. Who knows what will happen. I imagine we’ll have to push for a thorough investigation, though it must’ve been pretty bad for the hospital to be taking action unbidden. She was no vision of health but I have to assume other patients are experiencing similar neglect.
There won’t be a funeral, so, that’s it. No condolences needed, we weren’t close. If we were, I’d write some memories of her here, but all the ones I have are no good (she did love her cats, so there’s something). I’m just noting that this happened because it feels like someone should, and I doubt anyone else will.
