Can a nursing home physical therapist, refuse to follow my surgeon's orders?
My surgeon gave me a prescription for physical therapy and the therapist at my nursing home is refusing to do the physical therapy on me. Can he refuse a doctor's orders?
The physical therapist should comply with the doctor's orders. You should inform your doctor.
If the physical therapist fails to comply with the doctor's orders, you may have a potential lawsuit for negligence against the physical therapist and the nursing home provided that evidence such as medical reports can establish that you were injured or your condition worsened due to the lack of physical therapy.
