Sorry it's been a long time since I've been on here but I need to air my frustration. John has been in rehab for 4 weeks now and was doing really well with his physio to start with but because all they've done is get him to slide on a slide board from bed to wheelchair and vise verser and not much else until last week then they got him standing and walking which really pleased him but that particular physio has gone on annual leave so he has another one who has gone back to the beginning which has got John really angry so he's refused to do the board transfere and won't cooperate with her so she told me today that she is withdrawing all therapy unless I'm there which has put huge strain on me and is totally unfair she's also told the nursing staff to hoist him again because he refused to board transfere in his therapy session it's like he is being punished for kicking off but my concern is that this is a head injury rehab and if the staff can't handle a patient that gets verbally abusive because their frustrated they shouldn't work in this kind of unit. Do you think I should demand a new physio for him as he clearly doesn't like her and won't cooperate with her. They say I'm the only one that can calm him down but I live 14.5 miles away from the hospital and have 3 kids to care for so I think the hospital and John are relying to much on me. It also doesn't help that John won't eat the hospital food so they have asked me to make him lunches and dinners to put in the fridge so he's got my food this is challenging in it's self. I'm so over loaded with everything I can't think straight I'm so fed up 😭 😭 😭 😭 xx
