"My daughters treatment"

About: Royal Oldham Hospital / Urology

(as a parent/guardian),

In December last year my daughter had a water infection which wasn't clearing as quickly as it normally did and the only way to get her urine tests results quickly was for her to be admitted to hospital so our doctor did this. After being put on the medical investigation unit she was transferred to Ward G2 Royal Oldham hospital. As she was a kidney transplant patient I knew she needed to take her medication the following morning so left her tablets and medicine plus eye drops which had to be kept in a fridge. The next day a consultant phoned to say they were treating her for the infection so I asked if she had had her meds, the answer was no. They had lost them plus the drops had been thrown in a cupboard so had to be destroyed. This was the start of a dreadful 6 days, my daughter didn't even receive basic nursing care. She eventually died a few days later, so I want my story told so as nobody else is treated as she was and our family put through so much heartache
