"Concern about the Care of my Grandmother at the Royal Oldham Hospital"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital / General surgery

(as a relative),

My Grandmother was admitted for a routine minor procedure on the advice of her consultant. After the procedure she was fine but was kept in overnight. Within 24 hours her condition deteriorated, this was written on her notes. Over the next 12 hours she became very poorly and it seems like nothing was done.

The nurses continued to write the notes and say they were only nurses. A doctor never came, a consultant never came. Within 10 days my Grandmother died.

She had gone in there perfectly well, we felt she was given little attention after her operation and totally neglected due to her age. It seemed like there was absolutely no continuation of care.
