Hi does anyone know what a care pathway is?
My husband is in hospital again with another infection of unknown origin.
He was in hospital a week ago with UTI the doctor discharged him 2 days later with loads of antibiotics even though his urine was very dark and had blood clots in it and that he was very confused he said he was medically fit !!!!.
After being home for 4 days my husband started to get worse he ended up being totally unresponsive it scared the life out of me i thought he was going to die he was again taken to hospital where he still is and now is totally confused he is talking about people who have long since died saying they have visited him. He said he had to chase someone who was throwing stones at the windows.The hospital have stopped his antibiotics when i asked why they said the infection has cleared up but his white blood cell count is high so they are going to do some more tests.
I was looking through his notes and noticed that he has a care pathway in place its never been in his notes before,Also when the ambulance turned up they asked if he had a DNR in place i said no he said i should think about getting one. Is there something i am not being told ???
