Hi Everyone Mum is currently in hospital with another chest infection. She's been there a week and a half. They now of course want the bed. They are talking about sending mum home with an IV line in her arm for a nurse to come in daily and inject the antibiotics into her. I am worried about this as with the Dementia mum keeps pulling the line out in hospital, she's bound to do it at home. I am in no way medically trained and as I understand this is going straight into a vein. What will I do? Is it safe to let an Alzheimer's patient come home with an IV line that isn't medically supervised all the time? I'm scared witless. Can someone advise quickly please as they may be touch today to arrange discharge. THANKS.
