I was in hospital with my grandmother. She was a palliative care patient. She didn't have long to go, when the doctor told me they wanted to move my grandmother to an aged care home or Derby Hospital because the hospital might be full. The doctor also said, it might be getting too much for the nurses.
My grandmother was in a palliative room where people pass, so she was in the right place. When the doctor said this, it made me feel like we were being pushed out. We did all the work for my grandmother. All the nurses had to do was give her medication and let her sleep. We showered her, took her to the toilet, changed her sheets, did everything for her care.
Me and my family were all very upset by the way the doctor made us feel.
