This is about my sister who has been in hospital for 3 nights. She was admitted straight from A&E with pain and her bloods flagged up major inflammation.
Diagnosed with diverticulitis ( never had this before)and is on IV antibiotics . told by doctor what she can and cannot eat. Menu is given out to choose daily and each day there are no foods she can have ( according to the list she was given) Told outside catering that’s all there is 🤷♀️🤷♀️. Her cannula came out blood dripping for over 1 1/2 hours until someone was found who could put another in, nurse rushed it and it really hurt. Begged doctor for a sedative yesterday evening as she hadn’t slept for 3 nights also asked for pain killers and was prescribed paracetamol . Repeatedly during the night she left her bed and asked nurse for said prescription . They just said waiting for doctors to sign prescription . It arrived this morning at 6am. She is not responding to antibiotics and has been told she will be for the rest of the week minimal. No visitors but her husband managed to walk in to the hospital this morning with home soup and other food as well as paracetamol . She said it’s like a war zone. Husband is trying to get her moved to a private hospital but they can’t find her notes or a doctor to do the transfer. I’m so shocked at her treatment.
