Lady down the road, was in hospital last week, came home, 3 days later and back in hospital again, they are now planning to discharge her again.
There has been no attempt to provide any kind of extra support, there is a carer but there has been no attempt to contact him, first he knew lady turned up on the doorstep.
Really bad this is supposed to be a good hospital, and there is community support, we are a Vanguard town, extra care to stop the elderly ending up in hospital.
We have a big team of community workers, that’s what the newsletter says, never seen any visit.
Doesn’t the hospital get fined, if a patient goes back in again.
There really seems to be some wrong with the discharge team.
