Mum visited consultant who said she needed colonoscopy but because of her kidney function she would need to be in hospital while having the sachets to avoid dehydration so would be put on a drip. A letter arrived telling her to go in at 2pm. When she arrived no one seemed aware of her visit, there was no bed and she was in a chair for the first few hours with no sachet given which was worrying as procedure was for the morning. She was not put on a ward for ages and then she was not given any drip. I thought there was no point in her over night stay in hospital as she wasn't given any extra fluids and may as well have stayed in the comfort of her own home.
