    I feel like their claim of not being able to turn him is BS too, I think they were neglecting him. A lot of times he said he couldn't get help in the middle of the night and sometimes during the day...

    I wasn't for sure but I didn't think Ativan was a pain medication... I'll have to ask, maybe the nurse just said the wrong thing.
