My sister had an operation to clear the arteries in her leg.
The operation was a great success and she should have left the ward within a few days, however, she is still in there and deteriorating each day.
The nursing care has been fantastic, they could not have been kinder or more caring, however, they have decided that she is no longer safe to live on her own.
This is very strange as she was happily living on her own and managing very well before she went into hospital.
Talking to Consultant friends, the anesthetic may well have affected her but I, and all the friends who visit her, think she would be so much better back in her own flat.
As it is, the hospital is pay for an agency nurse, whose sole duty is to sit with my sister all day and ensure she does not leave the ward.
The whole situation is ludicrous, every day I am told they are waiting for a bed in Trafford Hospital, every day she takes up a bed which could be used by somebody on the waiting list and, worst of all, she is deteriorating mentally and physically.
Please can something be done.
