My husband is on Ward 31. He has been monitored with information sent through Wifi to CCU because of a drop in heart rate where upon he collapses. The doctors want to send him home view to having a 6 day tape as an outpatient.
In the meantime he continues and will probably continue to have these collapses at home. There seems to be no communication between different doctors that my husband has seen - they don't seem to sing from the same song sheet.
Why does my husband have to wait for this tape once he's home? Why can't my husband upon being discharged go straight to outpatients dept to have the monitor fitted to him therefore making it continuous care?
