"appalling care"

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

My elderly father was admitted to Stepping Hill for a routine procedure which was cancelled due to his low blood pressure. He was kept in hospital over night as a precaution. He phoned my step mother to say his leg - which had been operated on previously to increase the blood flow - was painful. When my step mother arrived the today to take him home she alerted staff to the fact his leg was purple - he had already been given morphine for the pain. It was down to the persistence of my step mother that my father ended up in an emergency ambulance to Wythenshawe Hospital and we are now waiting to hear if he will loose his leg.I am absolutely appalled with the care he received at Stepping Hill.
