my mom was brought into CDU from her DR's Monday..arrived 17.15 with high heart and bp rate..paramedic had at one stage said might be LDF..found bed at 23.00 after going to wrong ward,moved to 620 tues 18.00,..told she had a comfortable night even though she couldnt sleep thru her stay. had concerns regarding use of both inhalers and nebulisers, main grip is my mom asked for a plaster both friday and saturday am and was finally seen to when we arrived both days at 2pm..asked nurse sunday for change..finally got plaster monday noon after asking same nurse,..we took her home 14.00 monday nad as of writing this at 12.00 tuesday still waiting for THM which are vitally needed for her heart and blood rates...why does the QE open a overflow ward when they are understaffed has it is?..also i feel some nurses should be trained better in care and compassion
