My elderly father became delirious due to an infection whilst an inpatient in Gloucestershire Royal Hospital. The ward staff did not listen to my concerns (I am a registered mental heath nurse) and my father suffered immensely as a result. The turning point was his referral to the Psychiatric Liaison Team. The nurse, Izzie, listened to my concerns and took them seriously, she assessed my father thoughly in a professional and extremely respectful sensitive way- the only one to treat him like an adult rather than a naughty child. She very quickly put a sensible and realistic treatment plan in place, ensured that it was implimented and kept me informed throughout the process. I felt that she really valued and embraced partnership working with patients and carers.
My father is now recovering and thankfully cannot remember the worst of his experience. I am not convinced that he would have recovered if it had not been for Izzie so thank her greatly for acting so swiftly and professionally to get my dad back.
