"Ongoing Care After Hospital Discharge"
Posted by oscarqf93 (as ),
I suffer from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) and often wake in the night unable to breathe. About a month ago I rang for the ambulance. It arrived at my door by the time I reached the door to unlock it!
I was given immediate attention in the Emergency Department and then moved to a hospital ward. After two days and nights of care I was discharged. This discharge happened suddenly as there was fear of a flu outbreak.
When I arrived home I received a call from a district nurse. This was so helpful and I valued their care over the past month. Each nurse was positive and extremely caring. Mistakes in medication were sorted and now I am ready to be on my own again.
