Well i was right to have concerns as dad had not had NO pain relief since he's operation NOR as he had anything to eat drink.
Nurses doctors on surgical wards don't know how to treat deal with dementia alzheimer patients on acute surgical wards.
Is quite damming really how they dont understand how dementia alzheimer effects patients and how more care watching supervision is required to aid recovery.
Well today i had to tell them my dad when he say's something re eating drinking and taking medicin when they refuse and suffering from dementia alzheimer you should not take refusal literally BUT keep trying as they forget AND will comply.
Well hospital ward had taken my dads refusal literally.
So guess i am going to have to get he's admiral nurse HE's CPN and social worker to explain that when dementia alzheimer patients refuse they dont mean it THE just need you to take your time and try instade of withdrawing food water or pain relief
Also if have eating swallowing issues they need to know its more dementia alzheimer disease that physical issues.
Needless to say i was not happy to hear dad screaming in agony and dehydrated and hungry.
