My mum has recently been transferred to this ward from Clatterbridge after treatment for cancer. When it was realised shed had an infection, she was placed on ward 20. My brother & I were told the Dr wanted to speak to us.
He thought she was there for palliative care & wanted to know about resus (y/n)! . Then I was told she had hospital borne pneumonia, my brother was told it is a bowel infection.
We (and she) thought her diarrhoea was caused by the liquid food, turns out she was being given laxatives by mistake. I am asking if she will make it out alive?
