On the night my mother died, several other people were severely ill.
It had been very difficult to speak to anyone during her stay in hospital especially on the Grenville ward and on the night she died I was unable to speak to her or even the nurse who was looking after her. I thought she was coming home, but apparently she took a turn for the worse. But this was not communicated to me. There was no 'end of life' care plan in place or even any form of communication. So it was a total shock when I heard of her death. The hospital still have not told the details surrounding her death.
It is a difficult time dealing with COVID but I think the care they have shown is horrendous. Even if I wasn't allowed to go in there because of COVID why wasn't I allowed to speak to her on the phone. They stole the last moments I ever had to say goodbye to my mother and for that I think I will never get over the grief.
I feel they also gave her too much medication and then wondered why she was so sleepy.
