In Response to Re: NIKKI HOW"S IT GOING?:
when i needed the attendants personally it was a friday dr day off 21 staples in my rt knee and one of those velcro type splints that went from hip to ankle, ( remember i'm only 5' tall and that thing must have been made for a six footer) and a bandage that had to be changed daily i found out that if you call the service you want yourself they will take over and contact dr for you and it works out faster i had a nurse visit on sunday morn and a bather on monday, because they could reach the dr when i couldn't i thought you had said a while back that he didn't have medicare , maybe someone else

We had been using VA as primary but when he was released from the hospital the VA Dr. can not go to the Rehab/nursing home so we used the Medicare as primary. With the Medicare the services they provide can not be duplicated by the VA so for now we are using Medicare still as primary. He will most likely be discharged from the PT and Nurse visits soon as he is pretty much back to his previous level of activity. I think the VA is actually listed as secondary and Medicare as primary.
