I also think a part of it had to do with the fact that they were under a lot of pressure to rehabilitate the kids from Berkley balcony collapse incident because of the publicity that went along with it, they were all over the news and I dunno maybe they just didn't have time or patience to deal with my husband and his attitude at the time.
Just a comment that it may help the situation to focus on more positive opinions. I'm sorry that you feel that the staff would do something like this. When I had hospital PT and OT for a major setback with pneumonia, I too was set at a table to crank a stationary bike for about 40 minutes each day, then progressed to a device to do "dips" (called a rickshaw). Both of these significantly improved my breathing and strength.
Do you know how to get him going on Out-Patient Therapy?
