Dad has been off of IV antibiotics for three days, day before yesterday we were told he was bed blocking and would be moved to another ward while it was worked out " exactly what needs he has that mean the care home won't have him back" as he is "medically fit" today we go in, he is screaming (genuinely has never really raised his voice in 88 years) and back on IV antibiotic, even stronger ones. Doctor says this will keep happening until his baseline stops being able to be stabilised ( what does that mean and what does medically fit mean for that matter?) each time we have discussed palliative care we are told it isnt the right time, we are talking to the wrong person, only the SW can discuss that etc etc etc. I have contacted the Alzeimers Society and they gently told me I have no rights, nothing at all as we didn't get time to get a PoA ( Dad fell down, when he got up he was no longer able to make his own decisions- yes that fast!) they recommended calling the Admiral Nurses to see if they will let us know what the criteria is for asking the doctors to consider not giving more IV antibiotics I not only feel totally useless I have now been told I am!
