"Dads admittance"

About: Manor Hospital

My Father had been discharged in October with chronic kidney failure and no follow up care was advised. He was re-admitted on December the 10th and discharged on the 13th. We objected as he was confused and had slept in his chair on ward 12 and no-one seemed to notice. He was then re-admitted on the 15th December with confusion and was advised he had kidney failure. He was on intensive care for two weeks and the staff on there were brilliant. He was transferred to New Cross on the 23rd Dec to ward C24 no-one explained to us what was going on properly the Doctors spoke to my Dad which I found strange as he was still confused. He has been discharged now but the stay at both hospitals was extremely unsatisfactory. I am pleased he is recovering but why was his condition not sorted sooner. He was on insulin but has now been taken off it?
