It was too good to be true, we thought dad was making great progress, we even got him out of the house the other weekend for an hour, but yesterday my mum found him collapsed on the bathroom floor, she phoned for an ambulance and after 10 minutes she had to call them again as they told her to hang up and someone would call her back, no one did, so she rang again and had to go through the same conversation that she already had the first time, which is stressful enough, by this time the family doctor arrived as mum had phoned them in the morning as she was worried about my dad, eventually the ambulance arrived, 40 minutes after the first phone call!
My dads stats had dropped to 82 which is why legs gave way but he also has a chest infection which doesn't seem to be clearing up despite being on antibiotics again!
So he is back where he doesn't want to be and god knows what infection he will pickup in hospital this time! My mum got a letter from his consultant last week listing his ailments and treatment from when he was in last time, you can imagine our horror when it was listed he had an ecoli infection while in hospital last month....no one told us this! But we were aware that there had been an outbreak in the hospital but not where!
We wrote a letter of complaint to the hospital director re the treatment, the hygiene care and the lack of knowledge of the staff caring for my dad which is being investigated at the moment, and also the fact that they moved an 83 year old man on oxygen 24/7 at 2am in the freezing cold with only his pjs on to another hospital as they needed his bed, this same man that they had only given weeks left to live!
So now we wait and see what happens this time. I cannot go through to Sheffield ( I live in Chester) as I have a chest infection at the moment which doesn't seem to be clearing up, my poor mum has to get 2 buses to the hospital and she's 80 and not so good herself!
Worrying times again!
