Since my last two admissions to hospital this year I have acquired one of the above to look after me in the community. She either calls in or telephones and she can arrange hospitalization without involving the doctor.
Her main concern was that there was one or two traumatic incidents during my last stay and that may have put me of going back in again (and truth be known it had).
Well there are one or two things she can put in place such as holding me on casualty until they can find me a suitable bed poss a side room. The main thing is that treatment of IV antibiotics gets started ASAP.
Because of what occurred and the fact I am resident of a nursing home I suddenly have acquired the handle of 'Vulnerable Adult'.
Any other member got these services yet or is Southport a first?
