"Difficulty in communicating with my mother in hospital"
Posted by Nurse NZ (as ),
My mother has been diagnosed with cancer and her life expectancy is short.
I live in New Zealand and have rang the Southern General Hospital several times but have not been able to speak to her as they don't have a hand held phone only a fixed phone in the office.
When she was in the Victoria, they did have this service which was great for both of us.
The nurse suggested that I ring during the visiting time and speak to her on my sisters cell phone, however we are 13 hours ahead of UK.
