"My father left in a worse state of health than when he went in"

About: Countess Of Chester Hospital / Gastroenterology The Royal Liverpool University Hospital / Endocrinology

(as a relative),

My dad was in Ward 7a for 4 weeks. I thought the ward was disgusting. My poor father is a different man. Care was not given was never diagnosed properly for what he went in for and was discharged in a worse state of health than when he went in.

My story and complaint is too long! Cutting a long long story short after 4 weeks in bed with no physio or anything he was discharged! No care plan in place nothing we were just left to cope.

My young at heart father had to be put in a care home and after 2 weeks because he was still ill on wrong medication which the Royal prescribed he was admitted yesterday to Countess of Chester Hospital severe dehydration breathlessness.

He was taken off all his medication and they have just got his stats up as taking beta blockers duretics for heart complaint he did not have! !

He is a different person he's not like my dad anymore he has been traumatised! He's now on a gastoentology ward in the Countess where he should have been when he was in Royal because the complaint was a blocked ilestomy!

Countess could not believe that he was discharged in that state with severe muscle wastage etc etc he couldn't even walk! !

In my opinion, this is a disgrace.
