The light at the end of the tunnel

Meeting went well at the hospital, have a package of care in place, IT equipment coming next Tuesday, community matron will call in daily,surgery nurse is coming in daily,we will have the equipment in case Dave's carbon monoxide levels get out of control, but the most important this I am picking him up this afternoon he will be safer at home away from any infections in the hospital.

On a lighter note don't know if the front page headline about the inquiry by the care commission into unsatisfactory discharges had any bearing on this , I did tell them Dave would never come into hospital as I couldn't trust them there will be no proactive care given will only sedate and let him slip away.OVER MY DEAD BODY

I am picking him up at 4pm today. Christine

Glad you have some good news too Christine, and Dave is coming home with a care package in place.

It's awful that hospitals can discharge people and for them to be left with absolutely no care at home. It happened to my mum too, fortunately I asked the GP for a referral to the community matron and she has literally been a lifesaver
