My mother developed a sore on her foot, after discharge for 9 weeks I have been frequently voicing concerns as the foot has become badly infected. I believe this foot should have been monitored frequently with her having diabetes.
She has been re admitted but antibiotics are not clearing the foot, iv antibiotics aren't clearing it.
I really don't know what the outcome is going to be but it is causing her extreme pain. The ward in the Royal discharged her with paracetamol for the pain. I am hoping that this foot will heal but I think it has been left to long and my mother is frail enough without this wound.
I have lost all faith in elderly care as this was unnecessary stress my mother could do without, I find this wound very disturbing that it could be allowed to have this outcome.
