"In hospital with a fractured leg"
Posted by Friend306 (as ),
I was in hospital with a fractured leg. The treatment I had was excellent, the physiotherapy was very good and I was soon walking a little way. I was taken to the toilet in a wheel chair- good service. I tried not to use the button fro attention but I could not attract attention for small things. The staff walked past me within a few yards but seemed trained to look straight ahead. At home I have an eye drop at 8am and 8pm but I had great difficulty in getting them to do it- just a few seconds job. Finally they did the eye drop one night at 11pm. I gave up on them and I started doing it my self- not easy. At every chance I tried to get discharged, I did so after three weeks. At home carers spent a lot of the time at the records e.g. one walked round the house with me. I was charged £121 per week for this magic service. Fortunately the rehab team took over for six weeks and then I went every Monday to a rehab place at Rotherham where I still go (just). Exercises and a meal for £5, very good.
