"24 hours of Hell forced to stay in an A&E bed..."
Posted via NHS Choices
My mother suffers with Schizophrenia / Bi Polar / Manic Depression or a hand full of other disorders. After been treated in the 60s a victim her life changing event. The NHS believed to be best treated by over 300 rounds of ECT. Recently submitted to FPH hospital following a GP referral for suspected heart issues.
The hospital staff refused to give her the medication she requires, instead issuing a heart medication with clear instruction to take no other tablets but the newly prescribed. Needless to say she was taken back to A&E when her cleaner discovered her extremely confused state. Where she was forced to stay for 2 days in an A&E room clearly branded as a mental problem.
Its now been a week and the hospital have lost the report and her support team have now diverted all lines to Farnham road hospital with no explanation to my mother.
