poor discharge

Healthsouth usually has such a great reputation, but my 17 year grandson was discharged from physical rehab after a sever accident where he needs to learn how to re-use his leg. He is not mobile and now without physical therapy. He was discharged without home nursing and physical rehab. He went home without an appropriate bed, to stairs and no bars in the bathroom with no time to prepare. He was basically kicked out with maids waiting to clean his room. My daughter is a single mom and does not have the means to care for him. He went home with discharge papers. This is so unacceptable! He was told he was only 30% there. we are talking about his left leg here..... he has to heal properly or his entire life can be ruined. This is neglect. From the accident an attorney is working to get all medical bills paid and masshealth closed so can't get auth? Really? so this kids leg doesn't heal properly? My expectation at this point is to call his mom and get this all set up to assist him ASAP. His foot was blue yesterday. A 17 year old boy can not move forward with life successfully with his leg. Sara is waiting for a call for Tyler. If not resolved, next step BBB and then add Healthsouth to his attorney for a case. This is good patient care???
