"Lost dentures during long-term hospital care"
Posted by Sky91 (as ),
My father is in long term hospital care at the City Hospital, Nottingham (nightingale ward). He is 70+, he has spinal damage and TB. The following three people helped my father get an initial appointment to have his dentures replaced. He, at the time of writing this has gone three months without dentures, dues to them being misplaced/lost in hospital. He has not eat solid food since! ! At present he is not able to walk and is completely bed-ridden. He feels like he’s lost his dignity and his confidence since losing his health and his dentures. Once I told Catherine Thaxter from the Clifton site, Nottingham) his story she did everything she could to push the initial consultation forward, along with Michelle King (dentist) and Adiana (dentist). Also Joy Miles from admin. I am aware of the long waiting-list but I am extremely grateful to them for taking our circumstances seriously and individually and pushing to help us a. s. a. p. I would like to thank them for the kindness and care they have shown. My mother + father, myself and grand children really appreciate it.
