85 yo female with inoperable acetabular fracture s/p fall. Dementia (alert to name and place only), HTN, CAD, previous MI. Internist and orthopod want to send her to rehab after discharge from hospital. Patient is insisting on going back home. We tend to agree with her and are planning to get a hospice consult. Need to know what the goals of rehab are and if it will be in her best interests.
