What I liked
The care my father recieved from Drs and Nurses was excellent in the hospital and I have already commented on this earlier in the month, however please see my comments below re discharge.
What could be improved
The discharge planning was poor, kept waiting around, the equipment from occupational health arrived a week after his discharge which led to my sister buying a bed aid leading to expenses we were not expecting. The occupational therapist was off sick and there was no cover. I have just found out today from kettering General Hospital that a referal to oncology has not been made which means my father whose pain is increasing is still not on the oncology list and I am having to chase the surgeon's secretary to get the referral faxed across which I think is not good enough.
