At first the hospital did not fully understand the situation about getting medication and they had to be reminded on a few occasions. After that, however, I would say that experiences in relation to getting medication on time were good for 3 out of a 6 week stay.
Unfortunately the patient was unable to manage taking their own medication as they were hospitalised after a fall, so getting the medication on time should have been a high priority. Due to frozen feet the patient suffered further falls as there was nothing to hold onto get trying to walk, however they were given walking sticks.
