"don't be over 70 !"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital (Orpington)

My elderly father fell and fractured his pelvis He was in for two and a half weeks before being sent home with a chest infection and incorrect antibiotics Home care team came and expressed their disgust at the fact he had been sent home - the following morning he was worse and the care assistant reported the case Emergency doctor came and Immediately sent him back to hospital as his chest worse his sugar levels very low and he was incoherent Why and how can they justify sending him home in the first place then later tonight attempted to send him he again All so wrong regardless of his age
