Although my mother was treated very well during her recent stay in Frimley Park hospital, I was very disappointed when she told me that she found a 'needle & screw' in her arm on the day after discharge.
She has very little sight, but her arm was itching and she found something stuck in it.
She couldn't see what it was so she tried to pull it out,
It took her a long time and she was very concerned about what it was.
She saved it for me, I still have it, and it turned out to be an old canular that was fixed well into her arm.
I do feel that as the staff knew my mother's eyesight was poor, they should have taken extra care to make sure they had performed all the tasks necessary before discharging her.
