My wife is in care at Claremont house was supplied with three pair of washable pants witch she used each day/night plus I had to supply two or three of disposable pants each day, the cotton pants did not contain the urine as well as the pants that I supplied and I understood that Locala were informed of this but when the nurse assessed my wife again she inferred that it was because I wanted a change of product that she was there and not because the ones they had supplied were not correct for her condition.
you have now written to me saying that you are prepared to supply one and two thirds pair of pants per day and I will have to provide the other two pair that you say she needs.
When the staff at Claremont did the assessment for you it showed that she would need between four and six pair per day of the disposable pants and more per day of the washable type. It appears from your letter to me that you have based your offer on cost and not on clinical need and I think this is totally unacceptable and also there is no indication of what the cost of these pants would be if Iwished to purchase from your supplyer.
The way that the nurse spoke to my wife was good but the contact with myself as her husband and carer wasn't. I feel ignored and not involved in decision making.
