About: Lister Hospital Lister Hospital Stevenage SG1 4AB
My elderly mother-in-law fell over four months ago, so we took her to Lister A&E where they said the shoulder was dislocated. They re-set it, and confirmed this with an Xray. We were concerned at the time that they hadn't checked her over thoroughly. Since then, she has been reviewed twice in the fracture clinic, without any detailed assessment. Today, on her third visit, they actually checked her and revealed that her shoulder was not properly re-set, and that it was even evident on the Xray taken by A&E. So many months on, it is apparently too late to fix this. She is no longer capable of independent living as a result of not one, not two, but three failures to spot this problem, and will now be in permanent pain. Disgusting. Avoid.
