My brother was admitted to hospital before Christmas and his stay lasted 4 weeks. During that time they said he had MRSA and two other infections that they didn’t k ow what they were. Gave him all sorts of antibiotic medication and eventually discharged him with a chest infection that wasn’t bad enough for him to be kept in hospital.
He was then admitted last Wednesday after becoming non responsive while we were at the nursing home. Needless to say we told the ambulance that we didn’t want him going back to the same hospital. (A staff nurse told me that we didn’t need barrier protection as MRSA is killed with the fresh air when you go outside) that was only one of the things we had to contend with.
Today we were told that the ct scan shows he has pneumonia and his bladder is hugely enlarged because of the catheter not going in properly. They are treating him with two lots of antibiotics. He is very delirious to say the least. This just seems to be going on for such a long time.
The consultant said hopefully things will improve in the next couple of days.
Sorry for the rant guys. Just had to vent somewhere that wasn’t family
