Jacksonville Jaguars ... 6-6 as I type.

14th. year of following the Saints online through live coverage on Louisiana radio stations ... even into dawn on mondays at times.

Worst part .... cajun food ads every break in transmission !

My experience is that hospitals seek to discharge patients with UTI s as soon as they are off IV antibiotics and on antibiotic tablets.

They still need to consider his overall fitness for discharge, especially as the previous time it was a failed discharge.
Make absolutely certain that a free Reablement package is arranged, and you have all the details, before discharge. You may have to be VERY firm about this!!!

If you havent already done so I would keep good records as to who said what and when. Initially I hadn't read your post under unsafe discharge, and I still havent read it all.

You must stand firm and insist he gets the proper care.

This. I had to basically insist that they didn't immediately discharge my son until we felt he was ready. It was a week before we were ready personally. He needed expert treatment.

Thank you all so much for your replies, I really appreciate it. I’m meeting my dads social worker on the ward this afternoon so she can assess dad and then see what happens. Thank you all once again.
