"Being moved from ward to ward"
Posted by EenyMeenyDiagnosis (as ),
One of these moved occurred at 1am from a ward to a glorified corridor in the oncology day ward.
This move occurred to a patient who was fasting from midnight in preparation for a scan & possible surgery the following day in spite of objection from a concerned relative. Furthermore the patient was awoke with the patients belongings stacked at her feet & at her side on the bed in readiness for the move at 11pm and on morphine due to extreme pain.
When the concerned relative enquired if the patient could object to the move was told that yes but it would involve the bed manager & the duty manager which would be a hassle. Furthermore the moral burden of moving was also given to the concerned relative to assist in the dissuasion to objection.
