Having read TFA, I don't think you can put all the blame on the rehab center.

Having read the article and with no other information, I'm siding with the rehab center on this one.

I'm sure the health department means well, they're probably understaffed in the best of times let alone now, but this sounds like a normal bureaucratic error. Hopefully it gets sorted quickly.

Having not read the article, nor looking at any pictures, I'm siding with putting all the blame on Poochie. I mean he's not around.  Where is Poochie?

I just got out of the hospital (non-COVIS stuff).  At night, there was an elderly woman who kept being combative with the staff and screaming "OH GOD HELP ME!!!".  The problem was, whatever got her put in the hospital was taken care of, but no eldercare facilities were accepting new patients so she was stuck there and wasn't handling it well.  There's a lot roadblocks in the processes these days.

Some places allow drinking, or at least they used to. I worked in a psych. hospital and later briefly an old folks home where they drank. Not my idea in either place, I swear. (Though I did ignore most drinking I knew of if they weren't a problem drinker.)

I took a group of psych. patients to my neighborhood bar several times on the instruction of our head administrator, perhaps after her hearing I would sometimes take runaways to an area bar to talk about things before bringing them back. OK, I guess that part was solely my idea, but I did immediately call my supervisor--a drinking buddy--and tell her where we were and what we were up to. It pacified them with a sense of normalcy and sure beat a longer ride back with a patient I was concerned might fight in the van or jump out in traffic...

Later at the Old Folks home their head administrator had me get beer and drink with the guys in house--perhaps after hearing from a nurse, a personal friend and bartender of mine that referred me for the job--that I'd brought guys to the bar and it always went well. (The usually rough crowd was even on their best behavior when I had my guys in.)

I just had the exact same experience. On the plus side, my nurse was very attractive. And she wore a mask the whole time, so there was some mystique.

Yeah, I know, CSB

It's Texas... poptarts and cigarettes are on the hospital menu.
