Grandma has a Fall Part 3. 8 Hours is Unbelievable


It turns out that the truth about Grandmas fall is emerging and it is not a pretty story.
We believe that she had her fall at somewhere around 3.30 pm just before the shift change at 4. Even when she was put back into bed she was saying that she thought she had broken her hip. It took a member of staff on the evening shift who normal works in another ward of the residence to finally get a supervisor to assess her. The then called the regular doctor who was unavailable, so the locum doctor was called as were my parents. The ambulance was finally called and took my grandma and my mum to the hospital at midnight.
This means that my grandma was lying there in even greater pain than usual [she is already on painkillers for other problems] and had to wait for about 8 hours to be seen by a doctor and taken to hospital.
Would you like to lie in your bed with a broken hip for 8 hours with only tablet painkillers to numb the pain.

I don't know about you, but the more I think about this the angrier I get, and you don't want to see me really angry because it can be downright scary.

I am going to have to go for a walk now to work off some of the anger.

8 Hours is just UnFucking Believable.

If a patient has a fall they usually keep them in bed rest as a safety precaution as to prevent another fall! With siderails up, with the call bell by her side! Since, it was a shift change, they need to get a full report on your Grandma before getting a hold of the DR., n it was midnight! Also, remember Grandma isn't the only patient in the hospital, there r other lots of sick people who are worse off!

Oh Mustang, there is nothing worse than finding out things like that. I know from experience! Sometimes nursing homes, hospitals etc take too many shortcuts or are too understaffed to know what is going on and to keep any eye on anyone. Its not their fault, its the damned government!!!

Still, i think you and your family should be making an issue out of this with the home and see what they have to say about it. It is not something that should be ignored. It is something which should be learned from so that it does not happen again.

Thank You all for your comments and concern. I was angry but that has been tempered with the knowledge that the staff do work very hard due to the shortage of staff, and it is always a fight on a slippery slope. The clientele require more care due to their infirmities, so that would be draining. I went there for the Xmas party and the staff are always putting in the effort.

Mustang, how is your precious grandma? Is she recovering well? I would sit down with the hostels administration and ask for a full enquiry. This is totally unacceptable behaviour regardless of the tight budgets they have. There are proper reporting lines and I suggest that you speak to administration for an apology (family and your nan), what measures they have taken to ensure this doesnt happen again and then I would also send a letter of concern to the Minister for Aged Care asking for an inquiry. It is concerned people like yourself that will help those who cannot speak for themselves as they do not have the support of family or friends (may not have any). Don't be angry........use this frustration and pen the letter. You will feel better for it. I promise. Thinking of your Grandma.

PS. Mat, I am soooo saddened to hear that. That is absolutely horrid. Sending lots of prayers upstairs. the missus.

Dont worry Harley, my mum, auntie and uncle are not backwards in coming forwards when it comes to right and wrong particularly in relation to Grandma. They have everything in hand. I am just a frustrated bystander who only wishes that this had never happened to Grandma.

STORIES ABOUT GRANDMA SHOULD BE POSTED ON A BARNEY BLOG OR SOMETHING NOT ON ADULT SITE!

Well SilentWhispers4u; I think that you need to get around and read some more blogs as well as check on the numbers of viewers and comments I have received when I have written about my Grandma, and you will realise the people who read my blog are concerned for her welfare.
Yes you do have a point, and a right to your opinion, but it is my blog and I will blog about what I bloody well like.
In Building Site language FUCK OFF.
I will accept criticism from my regulars and even from new visitors when it is constructive and polite. NOT when it is in FUCKING CAPITAL LETTERS which is AKIN to SHOUTING and especially from someone whose profile AdultFriendFinder cannot find.

Like I said earlier FUCK OFF and take your spiritless souless carcase of a pitiful excuse for a human being with you.

Hard words yes, but being an adult is about a lot more than just being able to copulate.

Mustang

I havent even begun to get fired up yet.

Mustang - just ignore the dumb cunt.

She's a pathetic, game-playing, lifeless, stupid bitch, cunt, whore...and yes, the list goes on and on. She keeps reincarnating herself - soft_n_tempting (has had a couple variations on that one), Lusciousbabe (had several incarnations there) and now she's popping up as SilentWhispers4u. She has no life and has nothing better to do but try to cause trouble. I have it from a dependable source that she has a lazy eye and walks with a gimp (probably from her parents dropping her on her head too many times when she was young).

SHE'S A FUCKING LOSER!

SilentWhispers4u, grow up u stupid tart. If Mustang wants to post something, he wil god damn fucking post it if he wants. What business is it of you or anyone else.

If you dont like it, dont read it. Ignore it. If you have a problem with what people write in their blogs, then maybe you should just fuck off and not read them, then you could go and "get a life"!!!!

Just ignore her Mustang!! You have the power, you can ban her!!!

Thanks for the heads up Lusty. I was wondering why her profile could not be found by the system and why a newbie was so caustic in her comments. The bitch had better not cross my path again, you dont want to know just what I would do to her.

Having a go at a guy for caring about his 94 year old Grandma.
Enough said.
