My father is 78 yrs old. Admitted Friday eventually diagnosed with Pneumonia and Pulmonaly Embolism on Tuesday, when treatment commenced.
He was discharged at 8pm on a friday- he lives alone. He has no care plan, has not been assesssed for social services care and was given a bag of drugs with no information apart from "it's on the label".
There was poor communication with his family and the delay in getting his take home medication was blamed on "the strike"
