my mum went into A&E on friday 1st march with a chest infection.after seeing two doctors it was decided that she had fluid on her lung.she was moved to a ward where she rapidly went down hill.the medication made her constipated and because she had a chest drain in was unable to get herself to the bathroom.she kept asking for an enema as she was very uncomfortable.we kept asking for 3 days and was eventually told that she had been given 1 the day before but that she had just forgotten shed had it done! after 2 weeks they diagnosed deep vein thrombosis and a clot in her lung.the nurses were in general nice,but it seemed that they didnt really talk to each other regarding mums treatment.my mum died in queens hospital exactly 4 weeks after being admitted on 29th march of Hospital aqquired pnuemonia.i could say alot more about her care in hospital but i think there isnt anything positive to add to our experience.
