I am with her now, had to work late, had a bite at home and came over. Its past visiting hours but I never pay any attention to them anyhow (never have). They have stopped the narcotics because she is still getting nausious and a little loopy. She keeps thinking she is at home sitting on her chair in her bedroom and she asks when she can go to bed.

A sympathetic Kiss My Butt to the "don't intrude" crap . She's your mother; if your brother didn't want you intruding to visit her, he shouldn't have had her move in. Maybe you could get her some easy-care wind chimes and such instead of plants.

As to the door, if it isn't repaired by the time she comes home, maybe you could lend a hand. Maybe you could add one of those gas piston things that closes the door for her. (the accountant part of me wonders what a door repair costs vs. the cost of a hip repair, just the monetary cost, sorry.)
That's pretty much my attitude. I have always visited unannounced (so she doesn't get upset if I am unable to make it), and she enjoys the spontaneity. My brother rarely visited her in her own house. He said it was just as much trouble to visit Mom as it was to visit his in-laws. Mom's house is maybe an hour drive, but his in-laws live in Hawaii! WTF?

They never kick anyone out anymore. "Visiting hours" are for the neighbors, co-workers, etc. Not for family. Family is almost encouraged to be there.

I have always ignored visiting hours regardless of my relationship to the patient. If asked I will say I am a brother, son, or whatever. Sometimes it has caused great hilarity!

^LOL I heard that VikingDad. Same occured to me many years ago My good friends mom was hospitalized. I told nurse I was a son also. She looked at my tall and Caucasian SELF comparing ME to my Japanese family. I told the nurse I was the product of the milk deliveryman.

Vikingdad,

I have saying a prayer for your mom the last several days knowing how this issue can be for older folks. Glad she is doing well and beginning to heal. Best to you and it is always a hard time when a parent has to live with one child or another. And worse when a terrible decision has to be made when they can no longer live with the family. We went through that last year. Since Dad is no longer mobile at all and is dead weight. Good news he is still sharp as a tack. But happy with his new room arrangements, likes the nurses and they like him. We sure need enjoy them while we have them. Thanks to you for being there when she needs you!

When I worked the floor, I was glad to have a patient's family & friend present. More eyes on the post-op patient the better as far as I was concerned. If they came to me and complained the patient didn't get their toast or that their toast was cold or something, it tells me the patient is during just fine. If they helped them to the bathroom, that was nice too. If the patient started to feel nauseous or turn purple or something, they could find me & tell me and I could do something about it myself, or get on the horn before it became a real emergency. I think you'll find in most hospitals the 'Visiting Hours' are there just to be able to kick out those people who are no help whatsoever and a real PITA.
