My elderly mother in law had to wait 36hrs for ambulance transfer from heartlands she had a fall during the night which was very bad. We were told around 12hrs later she had been seen by a doctor and she checked out well on her transfer back to good hope it was evident things were not good her face was black and blue she received a scan 2 days after fall which shows she sustained a fracture to her cheek and a bleed to the brain.
At good hope they understood she was high risk to falling and had bed alarms and low bed with crash mats. Heartlands hospital had no such equipment and even so had they transferred her back within a few hours this would not have happened.
She can not have the blood thining medication she now needs due to the brain bleed and is now at a very high risk of another stroke.
