I have just had ten days in our local hospital having IV antibiotics , in the ward was a guy who every time he was asked by physio to get out of bed he would stand up. wobble on his sticks and say he was too dizzy and crawl back to bed. But when the staff were not looking he could nip out of bed, stroll to the toilet, stroll back and get into bed. He also seemed able to move at twice my speed without sticks. Have others of you noticed similar people. I know the fear of being alone at home is a terrible thing, but the system should be able to help someone like this and put a valuable bed back into use.
