"A 90yr.old man with severe Constipation at night/weekend"
Posted by twingo (as ),
90yr. old on toilet 8pm. constipated, goes back to bed, 8. 30P. M. I administer a glycerol Suppository in back passage, and again 9p. m. did not work. Phone 111 at 11p. m. whilst he is screaming, 20 mins of questions, like blue lips, answer No. etc. etc. not emergency wait up to 4hours. 2A. M. Two staff arrive, by which time 90yr. old is cursing and swearing. Staff refuse to treat him. Explain he has Dementia, so they go back and give him enema brutal with him screaming, then warn there will be a trail of mess to bathroom, and leave. It did not work, nothing, phone 111 about 3-30 Talk to advisor dr. Resort to pulling out block in back passage myself by hand, which gives some ease, Doctor rings at 4-30a. m. to check, nothing, at 6a. m. he gets up, and gets a neighbour to phone the police, who arrive at 6-30A. M. I phone 111 again get put on to local staff who arrives at 11A. M. administered 2 micralax enema, which worked right away. That took from 8pm till 11am to do a poo!
