My mother in law had rheumatoid arthitus and osteoporosis she was in ward 22 where she was in a great deal of pain due to bones that had broken in her back. I'm sure she was considered a 'demanding' patient by nursing staff due to the fact she was asking for help due to her disability (like help to get washed) and asking for her medication repeatedly and Marion was aware at the time the nurses were short with her and she discharged herself. I have no doubt she was demanding but this was due to the pain she was in.
One week later the GP had been out recommending she go back to hospital which she refused as she didnt want to go back to that ward, however she took a turn for the worse and had to be re-admitted due to pneumonia. She was admitted to the Acute Medical Receiving Unit and she was given anti biotics but wasnt getting better, thats when we met the Dr and he discussed the options with the family he was very sensitive and kind to the family and we would like to thank him also the staff on ward 14 where sadly she passed away who where all great at such a sad time.
