Although my husband's home telephone number was on his admittance forms, they discharged him in a confused state early in the morning, in thin PJs, slippers and with a wash bag. Because they knew he had an appointment mid afternoon that day to have an endoscopy in the same hospital, they left him in the waiting room for that procedure.
Since then, the hospital staff I have spoken to have put all blame for being left there onto him for not knowing his own phone number. He was an emergency admittance to HRI HULL AAU ward because of his condition. Encephalopathy causes him not to know where he is or who his family are.
