"Post hospital discharge planning"
Posted by Lane Fox (as ),
I was discharged from St. James hopital at the end of April. Full details of my community care were faxed that day to Community Nursing.
By 5pm the following day no-one had contacted me to make an appointment to call. I left a message for the team and two nurses came out from the twilight team. They could do nothing about my wound dressing as they did not have any information about me atall. I asked them to telll the day team that I would be at hospital the following morning.
Whilst out on Friday a nurse came and went away again. She did not come back.
Now I must wait until today, Sunday. Again no appointment time has been given and some three days after discharge I am still waiting for a nursing plan.
I feel this is a disgraceful service and does not match up with any goals set.
