Two more phone calls from Bro.
First phone call: Pa has been found in a cubivle in A&E and a urologist is with him sorting his catheter. He will then be admitted for the night.
Second phone call fve minutes later: The Lovely Home have just phoned Bro to say they've just been phoned by the hospital to say that Pa is on his way back to them.
Pa had not been booked in properly, and had Bro not made enquiries he would still be on his own
in a cubicle in A&E and not seen to. As soon as they found him they got a Urologist to see to him and as they don't usually send people home by ambulance at this time of night they were going to admit him, until they discovered that he needs a high level of nursing care, hoisting, specialist diet etc and suddenly they decide they can send him home by ambulance at night after all!
It transpires that although the GP had explained when he booked the ambulance late this morning that Pa had to go straight to the Urology Clinic and not to A&E, because the ambulance didn't pick him up until 4pm, by the time he arrived at the hospital the Urology Clinic was closed so he was taken to A&E and left there
Thank goodness he's going back to The Lovely Home - he's safer there.
