I've been told today over the phone by a doctor that dad will not survive and will die soon. He isn't eating or drinking (as thickened which he hates) and has been delirious over the weekend. I wanted the doctors to know that dad isn't usually like this unless he's in pain, or wants something, but was given short shrift. I was told that they are going to stop his antibiotics, fluids and even his insulin (he's a type 1 diabetic). No questions or asking what I would like. When I queried whether it was right to stop his insulin the doctor got very shirty. On the ward dad is on there is no one I feel I can talk to as the staff are horrible and seemingly hard. They have written dad off and I don't know what to do. Dad might be at end of life but I feel it could have been handled better. Whether it's because he has come from a Home in Wales (where he's been only since December) and the hospital is in England. If they treat everyone life this it makes me shudder!
