As you are already stating, Todd is already chomping at the bit to go home. I hope his niece puts her foot down and makes him go through the rehab. I see this all the time, patients think they are better and want to go home, even though you as the nurse, doctor, etc.. can see they are not ready to go. You have to have a family that is supportive of both the patient AND the health care/rehab team. All any of us wants is for our patient to get better and go home safely! And Ray, if you talk to Todd, tell him I said to behave himself and cooperate with therapy. Things are covered at home....all he needs to do is concentrate on getting stronger and healthier.
