A district nurse plans to visit me next week. My experience with previous District nurses has been fraught. The 1st one went on leave. Her replacement got involved in a road accident and had to postpone. She arranged a replaced but noone got back in touch.( maybe because I was in and out of hospital- 12 times this year already)
Now finally after nearly a year another one got in touch. How can i make use of this visit? I don't really know what their role is? I was told they spoke to the last District Nurse and also liasied with my respitorary nurse so thats why they are coming out?
I am hoping they will help to minimise my hospital admissions and readmissions. But i might be expecting too much. What have your experiences been like with District nurses?
