"Patient care and dispensing of medication"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

To explain further my frustration at my previous posting I noted that on the board above my mum's bed there was no designated doctor nor nurse with whom I could confer. Other then my mum's name there was no other information. Surely, that's not right? I'll take a photogtraph tomorrow, just in case there are future issues ... I'm also very worried that my mum apprently overheard a doctors' conversation that she was going to be discharged today and so struggled to get out of bed, pack up her belongings, then sit on a chair (whilst still on a drip). she was waiting for us when my cousin (ex-senior nurse, health visitor and manager of a care home) came to visit. did no-one notice?
