Calling from California to the B wing, I asked if staff would answer Mother’s speaker phone (Rhode Island Adaptive Telephone Equipment Loan (ATEL) Program) so that I could talk to mother:

“I want to go home. I want to go to my bed. Right now. If you get a chance, Heather. Hurry up. I want to get into my bed. I want to listen to you talk. I want to get in bed.”

(Mother, the nurses want you to stay up, so when you go to bed you will be really tired and not wake up in the night.)

(Samantha, the staff member listened outside Mother’s room and she said Mother seemed O.K. and stopped crying.)
