Husband went into emergency recently. (Gallstones) he was waiting for 5 days for surgery, each passing day he would be fasted only to be told by 6 pm that surgery was cancelled. 😠
Finally had surgery on the 5th day which had complications, which was meant to be 5 hours that turned into 8 hours. 😱
First night after surgery husband had a rough night due to handover nurse not giving him pain relief/medication on time - missed by 3 hours. 😠
He was been moved to another ward where he was on a strict diet. He requested for the staff to help set up his info., so he can have a selection of choosing his own low fat diet meals as he’d had dry chicken for lunch and dinner (same meal) for 3 days. No help given. Was moved to another ward at 8.40 pm when I felt this could have been done during the day, as he was settling in for the night. Each day a new doctor came in to see him and we were told all sorts of what we felt was BS and still no answers as to why he wasn't being discharged. It’s almost like they came in without reading notes. I understand it is impossible to read through all patients notes but a little quick read over wouldn’t hurt. Husband there for 11 days. In our opinion, no help, no answers
