MIL came out out of hospital last week after fracturing her elbow. Carers in place four times a day as she is doubly incontinent and cannot cook for herself or wash etc. Only two days later she was found on the floor three times in one day by carers. This has happened before but not this frequently. She is now back in hospital but they do not know why she is falling. Her blood pressure is fine. She has vascular dementia so takes pills to keep blood pressure down. We know from our Just Checking system that she hardly ever sleeps. She obviously can't stay in hospital for ever. There is nothing the NHS can really do for her. Family insist she goes back home with carers. We continue to disagree on this. I think she should be in a CH. Latest idea is to give her an alarm for when she falls. Great if she remembers to use it and one of us can rush round there every few hours when it happens and during the night because she does not go to bed! At the end of my tether. Every time she comes out of hospital they say this is the last chance saloon except it never is and the rest of the family have to suffer the consequences of poor decisions of others and get no say in the matter. If they are so determined to keep her at home then fine but put 24 hour care in place. Oh but that is too expensive. I really believe she would be better off in CH. she would have company, regular meals, kept clean and somebody on hand immediately if she falls over. Is it just me. Why do they just not get it? So frustrating. Anybody else had experience of falls like this? On the plus side she has no idea she keeps falling. Doesn't know why she is in hospital.
