Colchester hospital, I wouldn't go there, my brother in law is there now and has been there for five days. In this time his bowl has stopped working due to surgery two weeks earlier, he has an ileus, for 5 days they have kept him nill by mouth. Due to his constant vomiting now he has a nasal tube for the last three days.
Three days ago they said he needed a picc line for t. P. N. each day he is on the list and it will be done today, and each day, it seems they cannot fit him in today. It has come to light they have been lying as they have no specialist to do it, we ask each day to see doctors, as he is 34 but has the mental age of 10, and does not understand what they say to him. We can’t seem to get a doctor to speak to us; I feel this hospital could be reported for lack of care.
