"Mental Health in Nottingham"
Posted by bikerboy (as ),
I see an in patient on a regular basis for social activities outside his unit. Recently he has become unwell as a result of trying a new drug. He has had to be moved from his unit as they did not feel they could manage his behaviour. He went to Highbury to a unit with greater capacity to care for him. They claimed he was too difficult to manage. He then was moved to the Highbury Intensive care unit. What bothers me is that, despite being so unwell that he needed to move, he has not seen a Doctor at either unit at Highbury and there has been no review of his medication. It feels like he is stuck in a unit that should address the underlying issues ie is he on the correct drug? Yet there has been no medical oversight of his care. He was moved late last week and its now mid week and I am sure this is not correct. The mantra I keep hearing at all of these places is there are not enough staff.
