I'm new to forum. Hope I'm in right place. My husband was in hospital and had a stroke that went undiagnosed. I transfered him after that tried to discharge him with hospice for end stage liver disease. He doesn't have liver disease. The dementia was a stroke. He had been recovering well at home when he got septic from a hospital acquired bed sore that was not manageable at home.since then he yells names Bob Bryan George but would calm down and answer questions . The last place gave him so many drugs it was unable to do any thing but stare. Now he can't answer questions he tries to you can see him think then tears from frustration. Will this improve since the drugs have been stopped? He is trying I think but will keep yelling so loud. This keeps nursing staff away from the interaction I think he needs. I want him to come back home but afraid I will not be able to meet his needs. Small doses of seraquel 100 x2 and depokote 250 mg x3 worked fairly well. Any help or advice would be great. We have been together for 40 yrs and he just turned 65. Makes me so sad to see what could have been avoided. One doctor who would not listen to him or me, missed so many things that was brought to his attention and ignored make this worse. I was a nurse as well as an EMT and paramedic.
