"Superb nursing, very poor communication"

My 90 year old mother, who is bedridden following damage to her spine after a fall and appears to be suffering from dementia, has received superb nursing. All who have been involved with looking after her have been professional, kind, helpful and patient.
My one note of criticism is that in three weeks neither my sister or I, who hold 'Power of Attorney' for her 'health and welfare', have yet to hear from a doctor.
At least one family member visits mum daily - a doctor involved in mum's treatment has never been available and 'promises' from nurses or social workers that they will ask a doctor to phone us produce no result! Nurses and Social Workers in the hospital seem as frustrated as us in getting doctors to contact us!
