"My district nurse is excellent"
Posted by Honest911 (as ),
I am bed ridden because I suffer with sever neuropathy ad therefore receive regular visits from the district nurses who are excellent. Today, the district nurse came to visit me because i am having trouble with my mattress. I do not have any bed sores at present, but, the mattress is causing me pain. They are now going to get someone else to come and evaluate the mattress.
The care that I receive from the district nurse is excellent. I have regular prescriptions for morphine from my GP, but for only 20 days. I need to then call and request some more medication. On their system this brings up a red flag because it shows that I have already had morphine for this month. we then have to go through the procedure of speaking with the doctor to get my medication. This happens every month, it would be much easier if I could just have a months supply and then reorder without all of this hassle. I rely so much on this medication.
