Our mother is an inpatient in Highbury a meeting was held with consultant in september where our concerns on our mother going home were overlooked,all we keep being told is she has the capacity to make her own decisions,even if she make the wrong ones !!!!
The upshot is on 14/10/15 she was discharged on a hope visit but never ever got into the home,an incident occured as she was getting out of the taxi and she is now waiting to be operated on for a fractured femur whether she will recover from that who knows.
i work for the health service myself on an Oncology ward and i have never come across some of the discharge errors like i have on Cherry Ward......
