"5 discharges in 7 weeks"
About: Stepping Hill Hospital Stepping Hill Hospital Stockport SK2 7JE
I'm a great believer in the NHS but it seems to be falling apart at the seems. My mother is into her 5th time in less than 2 months. She is continually discharged when quite clearly they have not established what was wrong and then within days she is readmitted. She has been in several wards and it is very hit and miss on the care given and cleanliness of the ward. Currently in E2 which seems fine. She also is hard of hearing and so when she is discharged it seems she is totally confused about what she went in for and what treatment and any support follows. Last time she was discharged she was promised a district nurse visit the following day plus oxygen, Nothing happened so she is back in 3 days later with breathing difficulties. Please get it right before it is too late!
