At 1:47PM PDT I called Nikki at (386) 238-2285 because I still haven’t received word that mom has arrived at the Halifax ER.

I called the Emergency Services phone number (386) 238-2285 listed on the web page for the Halifax Hospital ER and talked to Nikki, a Physicians Services Coordinator.

I just got a phone call from Woodland Terrace. A woman named Amy said that she was calling from Woodland Terrace and that she wanted to know to which hospital I wanted them to send my mother for “altered mental status”. I said, basically, “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Who is this? What are you talking about?” […]

My sister sent me a text message to let me know she’d just received a phone call from Shelly Sparace at Woodland Terrace: Shelly just called. She said she and Sylvia looked at the website. From what she can tell, none of the items with “Denied” next to them are ones we are currently working […]
