My mother was referred to the north Manchester as their were no beds in Rochdale Immediate care. After waiting in A&E for over 19 hours she was put on emergency ward then transferred to F4. Had a X-ray in A&E but did not get results. Had numerous blood tests, no results. Had a scan and still we are trying to get answers. Each time we ask staff they just can't give us answers. My mum is not eating or drinking, I find cold drinks left a table out of reach. We go every day but feel that the attitude is "well she is 94". I understand but it is a human being and we need to find out why she is in pain. She just wants to go home and so do we. Trying to get information is awful, I ring every morning and afternoon and never speak to the doctor just a Clark who cannot tell me what procedures have been done and the results.
Never will I go to this hospital again.
We have to keep repeating ourselves over and over.
We would like a meeting with the doctor and nurse to find out what is going on. We also would like to stop having to keep telling them mum is not drinking . Please help . She is still on the ward
