Well i really am not impressed at the care my mother is receiving in hospital to the point that i am actually going to make a official complaint tomorrow morning
My mother went in to hospital having broke her hip , i phoned the hospital and told them my mother had parkinsons and needed her medication i told them the dose and the times ..
I went to see my mother last week and was called to see the doctor who questioned me about my mothers parkinsons medication i again told the doctor the dose and timing of her medication she wrote it down , it turns out that they were giving my mother ony 1 Sinemet a day when she should have been having 3 a day plus a controlled release at bedtime , i spoke to my mother the next day who said they were giving her tablets at 6am 12pm 6pm and 10pm ,i also have parkinsons and there is no way on this earth i manage to go 6 hours between doses i am so fed up of telling the hospital about her meds
My mother has had a couple of falls whilst in hospital and the nurses have turned round to my mother and said she is falling on purpose , how hard is it for them to understand that this is all caused by messing around with her parkinsons meds i am hitting my head against a brick wall
Tonight was the final straw i was on the phone to my mother and she asked the nurse for something and then something was said about my mother getting out of bed , to which my mother replied that she had sat out in the chair today whilst my brother was visiting , then nurse then replied that she did not , my mother said i did then the nurse in a really snotty voice said do not argue with me my mother then said why are you picking on me ........what i heard was nothing short of bullying what happened to being treated with dignity and respect ?
