About: University Hospital Of North Tees University Hospital Of North Tees Stockton-on-Tees TS19 8PE
My mother was admitted with kidney failure the consultant told us she had 4 to six weeks left to live but he failed to relate this to staff on the ward, she was later admitted with pneumonia and was left on a drip with her veins collapsing and antibiotics pooling on her skin, we as a family had to inform nurses what was going on. We were told nothing as she sat on a commode for 10 minutes ringing her buzzer. She was discharged today and the hospital got the wrong address to send her home, we finally got her home at 7.30' in tears and shock. Oh and it's been 8 weeks since this started not 4 to 6. Oh and she was filthy because it's to much paperwork to bath her. Quality of care is shocking, she is 84 and still has all her faculties. Respect and dignity out the window, my daughter wants to go into nursing but paperwork and patronising people has put the brakes on that one.
