My husband was admitted for surgery yesterday to have surgery to remove a foreign body from his infected foot. This was supposed to happen last night. Then it was this morning. Then it was today at 2:30pm. It's now 3pm [at the time of writing]. My husband has bipolar and is in manic phase. He hasn't eaten since 2pm yesterday. He is getting agitated and I’ve been sitting here trying to keep him calm all this time. He is about to leave the hospital putting himself at risk of sepsis. If this occurs I will sue. It seems that there is a distinct lack of duty of care toward patients with mental health conditions.
