I suspect this is happening because they are just giving her broad spectrum antibiotics rather than ones which are specific to the infection which she has. I would certainly be insisting that they do a culture and prescribe the right anti-biotic. I feel really strongly about this because my poor mother had the same thing happen and her dementia suffered as a result of it. Once they gave her the right anti-biotic it was like day and night!
Thanks for all replies, MIL has basically been on /off antibiotics for the last four months,
(chest infection/UTI) but hopefully now that they have finally changed GP's to one who is pro active and has an interest in geriatrics , hopefully the meds prescribed will target the specific infection.
Dropped off a bag of cooking/eating apples/pears and plums. Quines are a disaster this year. MIL tipped them on the floor with why didn't I b"""""r off with the fruit as SHE doesn't eat this C""P. So answer was I'm going and she didn't have to eat it, SIL and the other residents could no doubt use said fruit and any more that I brought.
Phoned this a.m. am I going round today NO, not until Friday. Tears nobody loves or cares for me BOO HOO
