My aunt was taken to A/E following a fall on july 6th . She is 89 yrs old and lives alone with carers visiting twice daily and has vascular dementia . My daughter on being notified of my aunts fall visited A/E and was told she wasnt ready for discharge . Over an hour later she was requested to take my aunt home but was unable to do so as in London and I live in Devon as the other next of kin and on the 6th was actually in Birmingham . Later we had several calls from my aunt to say she was at home . On enquiry the carers were not notifeid until we rang the emergency number. we rang Frimley Park and A/E were very helpful and stated she had been sent to F3 . the staff there said no one had been discharged and cut us off There is a need for urgent discharge and I know the hospital has time limits, but poor discharges cause re admission. I drove to visit my aunt on the 7th and she is coping in her own world but denies being in hospital . She thinks she went to a WRVS meeting as she did meals on wheels for over 30 years.
