Great Entity - now how do we get the nursing staff to actually read it Image

Mum has just spent two days in hospital for some tests, her notes say in BIG letters that she has Alzheimer's so why did the Doctors and Nurses keep asking her questions that she had no hope of remembering the answers to ? If I hadn't been there ALL the time, heaven knows what she might have told them Image

Care on a hospital ward

Help from hospital staff

"Ward staff will not necessarily know that the person has dementia, or may lack experience in working with people with dementia, so it is helpful if relatives and friends can give them information on how dementia is affecting the individual and suggest ways of assisting and communicating with the person. This will make it easier for ward staff to ensure that the person with dementia is comfortable."
