"put in vulnerable position at prospect park..."
Posted by Anonymous
my father was originally in prospect park,eventually told to try and find a residential home for him.we did this and moved him into Lakeside home.
All staff at prospect were aware he was going to Lakeside.
After a couple of days the manager of Lakeside told us that dad could no longer stay at lakeside due to aggression which needed specialised nursing.
The manager of Lakeside was really sorry and said they had not been told everything by Prospect Park when the assessment was done.
I met some really nice Doctors at Lakeside that same day, they assessed dad and decided he should be back in Prospect.
i took dad to Prospect in my car with a Doctor following me incase anything happened.
We arrived in Prospect Park and told i would have to wait with my father in a small family room until another Doctor admitted him back into Prospect.
I sat in this room from 7.30pm until 10.50pm when eventually a Doctor arrived.
I made it clear i wasn't happy being left for this time let alone with a patient that was being very aggressive previously.
I suffer from Arthritis and missed a lot of my meds that evening, i pointed this out to the staff but all they could do was apologise and told me i had to wait with my Father!
This was on 08/08/2016.
Today on 18/08/2016 i was asked to be at Rowan ward at 13.15 so i could sit in with the doctors as to what the plan is for my Fathers treatment/medication as this was the day they did the rounds.
This appointment was also written in the ward diary a few days previous.
Turned up at 13.15 to find my dad not in a good way, i won't go into what i had to clean up!
At 14.11 i asked a nurse when i could see the Doctor as arranged?
The Doctors were in a meeting but the nurse kindly asked them about my meeting at 13.15.
The answer i got was "that won't be happening today"
Do these people not speak to each other?
Really annoyed with the way things have gone at Rowan ward.
