So I’m a carer and the gentleman I look after got rushed into hospital last night with a chest infection causing sepsis.
His family are available to visit today but wanted me to go tomorrow. However today I met with the bereavement midwife to talk things through and ended up mentioning this to her, she advised I didn’t go on the ward as I was intentionally putting myself at risk of catching something and considering all we’ve been through feels it isn’t worth risking. He is safe in hospital and his family can visit when they’ve finished work, I explained this to his daughter (who knows everything we’ve been through) but she became quite abrupt.
I know feel guilty and like I’ve let them down, what would you do?
