What I liked
My mother was admitted on Wed 13th May and was very well looked after in an isolation ward.
What could be improved
A doctor available at visiting times for family to ask questions - the nurses dont always have the information you require.
My mother was discharged on Friday 22nd May - rather abruptly - it was a bank holiday and I felt she was being ushered out earlier than necessary. She was visited by Physio Dept and Ocupational Therapy, whilst on the ward. No-one from either Dept have visited my mother in her home, to see if she can manage the stairs, cook for herself, or manage to get in and out of her bath for showering purposes. She has received a phone call on 2nd June from physio dept for them to do a home visit to see if she can manage the stairs and bathe herself!!! I think it is a BIT TOO LATE she has been home for 11 days now.
