You just talking about residents ,they are not ill.It is different in a hospital setting,new environment for the patient.just don't compare care home to hospitals
My husband has had Alzheimer for over 8 years We have managed fine until he was admitted tp hospital with possible heat failure then the problems started, He was very confused as to why things were being done to him without explanation and became agitated by cannulas put into arms catheters etc and tried to take them out as he found they hurt. If I was not there he ried to take them out and by the end of his first week was black and blue as as soon as I was not there he tried to get out of bed etc. Know one kept a eye on him
But why do things like the new tariffs undermine an integrated team approach to supporting confused elderly people? Who designed the tariffs and why can’t they be changed? Is the King’s Fund raising this concern with the DH?
Thank you for your effforts in trying to put some of this right and if there were any way I can help I would be proud to do so.
