"My late husband"
Posted by acetaldehyde (as ),
My Dearest Husband had day surgery at the PRH earlier this month. From this he contracted Staph Aureus developing sepsis (Infection of the blood) and died in the RSH.
We encountered brilliant medical staff along the way including DR Roddy in MAU whose care and professionalism were outstanding. There were many caring nurses, but some, especially at night were afraid to give the additional pain relief as required even though this had been written up in my husband's medical notes. of the three days of palliative care only the last produced completely pain free condition. This does need to be reviewed.
