My mum was brought in after having a fall 3wks ago and she broke her ankle on both sides. The hospital didn't operate until a wk after she was there they was meant to of operated on the Thursday but canceled and told us this was due to not having enough surgeons in theatre. Since she has been in there she has been very distress. The ward she is on is shaugh ward and the nurses r rubbish they can't be asked to cope with my mum so they have rung me her daughter up at silly hrs at night to sit with her to calm her down cus they can't do there jobs properly. Apparently my mum needs a placement for rehabilitation but no one can tell me how long the wait is and has for communication between nurses and visitors or family there isn't any every time I ask what's going on they haven't a clue. It's been 3 wks now. how long is this placement going to take y can't she just come home my mum can do exactly what she is doing in hospital at the comfort of her own home.
