Elderly woman claims guardianship program holding her hostage
In May 2014, Davis says she had a bad headache, wasn’t feeling well, and called an ambulance. She somehow ended up at Memorial Hermann Hospital. One thing led to another, and the hospital discharged her to a nursing home. The specific details of how she ended up in a nursing home is murky, but what is clear is that until then, Davis had lived in her own house. During her stay in the nursing home, a doctor at that facility signed papers declaring she was incapacitated. That began a process to place Davis under the guardianship of Harris County, something she never wanted. Almost two years later, she’s still there. VIDEO:
