I don't think the hospital understood my Parkinson's disease. I took my own tablets in with a list of what and when to be taken, but I was given more of 1 tablet and not enough of others, consequently I was feeling very confused and hallucinating after my operation, I was in not fit state. I could not manage my own medication.
Staff were very good, except they didn't seem to realise the importance of regular tablets. At 10pm one night I phoned my wife to say I was signing myself out, I was so confused. She then phoned the hospital and explained again about my medication.
