What if I refused to pick Mom up from the hospital?


My mom is a serious alcoholic. 76 years old but more like 90. She lives in my neighborhood, not my home. I am an only child and there is NO other family around, period. I was out of town for 2 days in March and she had a panic attack and called 911, admitted to the hospital for a couple of days. In April she spent 10 days in a senior mental health/detox facility. Took a bad fall in May, hit her head, I called 911. She was admitted to the hospital for a couple of days. I begged for the hospital not to release her but they did. She took another fall last week and twisted up her foot. She refuses to discuss any other living arrangement (I will not have her live with me – she is verbally abusive and nasty) and mentions suicide on a regular basis (this has been going on for years and yes I’ve informed ALL of the doctors). If she is hospitalized again, can I refuse to pick her up?
