good hope hospital. The appointment was fine and I was told I would have an ultrasound injection
In a few weeks and a return appointment in 3 months.
However when I went back to reception to hand my form in there was no one there and a large queue was forming the receptionist was very flustered. The next day I had a phone call from her asking why I had not given my form in I told her I had then she found it, and made an appointment for my injection on 1st may, this does not seem correct to me and I feel her to be extremely inefficient and I’m not Happy about this at all.
frame and has no wheelchair was called at home late at night and told to get himself to AMU asap as potassium levels were life threatening. He went by ambulance and spent 4 days there during which time we never saw the same doctor twice and were told something different each time.
On Friday the doctor said he would stay on AMU because his condition needed banishing but if under control he could leave on Monday, as there was a care package in place.
Then Saturday morning he gets transferred to good Hope - elderly care unit. No calls to family - they had contact numbers. No explanation
On visiting Saturday and asking to speak to a doctor, I was told there is only one doctor covering all wards and this wasnt an emergency. He was out in a room on his own, still not been out of bed and is rapidly going downhill. Confused and has no idea how long he has been there Nobody checking he is eating, he is constantly thirsty but nit allowed to drink because if oedema and has been lying on a bed now for 6 days with no physio or attempt to get him walking and moving. This is a hateful place and we just want him home or referred to hospice care, but nobody seems to know anything every time you ask for information. I really despair that he will due there with no dignity.
This is a poorly run hospital with everyone delegating responsibility to someone else.
