"Very disappointing and concerning."

About: Hereford County Hospital

What I liked

The ITU and HDU were superb. Nursing staff were good. Food good.

What could be improved

A doctor wanted to send my mother home with very low oxygen levels at 75 per cent. She could not understand why I became angry when she told me my mother was fit enough to go home. Oxygen levels at consistent 80 per cent can lead to organ damage. I refused to go to my mother's flat and unlock the door to let them bring her home.

Better concern and treatment of elderly patients would be appreciated.

Anything else?

Only grateful that I do not live in Hereford.AggressiveFoodDoctorsNursing staff
