My dad has been pretty mobile, walks well, going to day clubs each week but problems being mainly at night getting agitated and wanting to get out and frightening mum a bit. Mum was obviously lacking sleep but at last GP appointment the GP said dad should be sectioned in what she called a hospital for 28 days. Mum thought it may be a good idea as dad is also pretty deaf and it would be a chance to give her a break and sort him out. He has only been prescribed quetiapine but mum said he has always been worse when he's taken this but still the GP prescribed it. Anyway dad went into unit last Wednesday - in that week he pretty much has changed and had a fall on Sunday morning and broke his hip - now in hospital. Although I'm not with it 24 hours a day I did think there could've perhaps been something else put in place before the section and to me it all happened too quick leading my mum to think it was the answer. Has anyone else had their relative sectioned and found any benefit from it. Has anyone got any advice - can we pull dad out? I obviously want what's best for him and mum but do feel he would deteriorate more by being in the assessment unit.
