Asked in Elder Law and Health Care Law for Michigan

Q: Mr. GEERS, None of the possible reasons you suggested apply or fit my mom's situation.

Dr. Kavanagh immediately suggested "pulling the plug" and after two visits to Borges we got her to Bronson where A bowel blockage was surgically removed, my Mom was sent home after only 24 hours and is recovering.

A: Thank you. It sounds like you may have a civil or administrative issue to address with Borges or that particular doctor; you should start there to address your concerns about that sign. The other answers provided were all within the whelm of possibilities depending on the totality of the circumstances. Knowing what the doctor may have said narrows the range of possibilities.
