"Long wait"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

Anything else?

After a long wait for a bed for my 86 yr old dad who was admitted by his g p for a urgent MRI scan ,he was eventually taken to gate 42 in which a bed was found ,he was given a MRI scan next day ,he was discharged with a letter to his doctor saying he had be catheterised and he was fit to go home,over the weekend he continued to be ill so he was admitted to prince if wales hospice ,which in turn found his kidneys to be really poor so they catheterised him ,when it all came out it was never done at pinderfieldss but someone had signed the procedure off saying it had been done,he Is now doing ok and comfortable ,I felt as if because he is old and got cancer that it did not matter but surely quality of life still applies ,he knows he is in curable but he also want to be treated with dignity not some silly old duffer who they think has no recollection of treatment ,
