My husband's grandmother has multiple fractures from being dropped from a hoya lift in the nursing home. The doctors will not set the fractures because she is 87 and bedridden. Is this standard practice? She has broken shoulder, hip, two legs, ankles, toes and a rib. If this is the standard treatment , something should be done to change it. Please feel to email any suggestions.
