I have entered details of my daughters condition some time ago, but now she is 36 weeks pregnant with her second child, suffering severely, we now have concerns with help that she is in need of.
There are many health and mental issues she has to deal with, Anxiety, Depression, Kidney decease, severe back pains since giving birth last year and ME.
She has been admitted to hospital for the labour pains, placed on a ward, there are six beds to a ward. she is now placed in the middle of these beds, people coming and going, asking my daughter from time to time she is struggling, response " Oh you will be ok". This of course places her in a stressful situation and the anxiety starts.
I have spoke to the ward duty nurse to express the various issues our daughter has to suffer and asked if she might be able to have a single room. One reply is that there are none available, even though I have walk around and found three empty rooms. Another reply is, they are for the serious medical issues who have been transferred from another ward.
Now I know there are rules, however I feel my daughter is one of the categories that should be seen as a needy person. I do understand the pressure nurses are under, but trying to explain the needs for my daughter do not seem to get through to them.
Is there anything else I can use to get them to review the decision?, before I go to PALs.
