Yesterday Friday 2 May my Uncle was taken home, he arrived around 4 in the afternoon, a nurse settled him in and checked things were ok, another person from the hospital was to see he was undressed and ready for bed at 6PM. A carer from the hospital visited at 8am today and got no answer, my Uncle was on the floor. After some chasing about the door was opened and he was whisked off to hospital again, all this in less than 12 hours. I met a person at my Uncles home later and she said without any doubt my Uncle is not safe to "self medicate" or be at home alone as was stated in a letter from the hospital, big fail for the hospital on this one. Its shameful to treat older people this way, all this after family tried to tell them many times he could not manage alone.
