My wife was admitted to hospital 12 mnths ago. and changes made to her medication. 6mnths later she is unwell and again admitted to hospital, discharged and then readmitted.
I am not qualified to comment on her treatment but during discussions with the doctors I discovered that a community nurse should have been activated pay her a regular visit.
This did not happen until after her second hospitalisation when I made sure that it was activated. What a difference! Sandra is competent and efficient and used to dealing with older people. Had she been coming after the the first hospitalisation a year ago the second problem would have been picked up at an earlier stage and the stay in hospital been averted.
