After my 93 year of aunt received wonderful treatment in A&E and ass unit she was admitted to ward 7 for 2 days a well but discharge proved to be a nightmare.
We waited from 3 40 until 7 for discharge letter resulting in her getting very anxious and upset.
Surely the answer is ring relative when patients ready to be discharged!
I observed another gentleman who waited over 5 hours to take his wife home. I am sure that this procedure could be really tightened up on.
