Sorry this is so long.
My partner suffered a cardiac arrest on the 19 September and has come through that OK after having a stent.
He came out of intensive care a week later and is suffering from memory problems, which are getting better daily.
He has so far been on 3 different wards at the hospital in the last week and we have been informed that they are waiting for a bed on the rehabilitation unit but cannot tell me when he is likely to get one.
He is very frustrated and bored as he is just lying around with no physio/occupational therapy and today he went off his ward and was found at the other end of the hospital after getting bored and wanting a walk (apparently he was gone for about 45 minutes)!
Today I have asked to see his consultant, but was informed that he 'may be around tomorrow'.
I don't feel that my partner is getting the appropriate help and wanted to know whether I would be in my rights to take him home where I think he will do a lot better.
Any help/advice would be appreciated.
