"Update about my mother"

About: Rotherham Hospital / General medicine

(as a relative),

Please read story titled discharged next day (Rotherham). This is an update to my mothers condition after Rotherham hospital discharged her on the 23 03 10. As you know my mother was back in hospital later that night and again discharged shortly after. My mother is again back in hospital this time she suffered a stroke on the 08 04 10. I will again ask the same question; should mother have been discharged? My mother is still in what I believe is a very dirty Rotherham hospital ward. I don’t really know why I am writing this because I feel like I am the only person who cares for my mother. If some of the docs did then I think perhaps she would have stayed in hospital the first time on the 23 /03/10. What a fast downward slide I feel the hospital care has taken.
