"Pressure to move my mother to a home"

About: Brampton War Memorial Hospital Cumberland Infirmary / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

My mother fractured her femur and after one week in the Cumberland Infirmary she was transferred to Brampton Hospital.

The care in the Cumberland Infirmary was not very good but the care in the Brampton Hospital was better. However, because of her age (93) rehabilitation was unsuccessful and she had to be admitted to a care home. The only thing I felt was not good was the pressure to move her to a home which was not of our choice.
