My 85 year old father who has vascular dementia, type 1 diabetes and heart problems, has been in hospital now for over two weeks on the Short Stay ward. He has infections, pulmonary oedema, pleural effusion and cellulitis but all are now clear, even his blood, and yet his infection markers keep going up and down and he remains on intravenous antibiotics. He has a fungal infection due to the antibiotics, I assume, and remains catheterised. I think he believes he is in another Home rather than hospital and has been very down at times. I don't live near him and, after two and a half weeks, we had to return home last Wednesday. I'm trying to keep informed as much as I can by phone and by a lady from the Home who visits on occasion. There is no continuity of care or someone overviewing my dad due to him being on the Short Stay ward but they are at least still trying to find the source of the continued infection. Is there anything I can or should be doing? As you can imagine I'm worried he might be becoming resistant to antibiotics as he has been on them orally virtually all the time since before Christmas.
