Durin the recent very difficult times caused by corona virus I had to take my wife to A AND E at our doctors request ,he did offer an ambulance but we live very close to a large hospital so I took her myself .....on arrival covid precautions were high and rigidly adhered to ,after booking in my wife was whisked away and I was told to wait in the car park and I told the nurse that she had N.E.S.S and gets easily confused if she has an attack ,and under no circumstances is she to be discharged other than back into my care ! I reiterated this several time to various nurses. Her treatment was first class but after her treatment 61/2 hours later they sent her out buy a different door ,she was totally disoriented and in some distress and wandered around for about and hour before finally ringing my son who had to travel a considerable distance to rescue her ,meanwhile I was still sat in a and e waiting for news .....eventually we were reunited...I know times are difficult but I did specifically tell them not to release her until I was there .......now when we arrived I told the triage nurse that I was her full time carer and guardian and had been for 20 years or more and she asked where my carers I.d was ...I replied I didn’t know that they existed she assured me that on becoming a carer I should have been issued with an I.d and a badge and this makes things a lot simpler at hospitals,i have been trying to find out about this I.d but all I get is blank looks and nobody seems to know what she was on about .....any information Will be most appreciated..........
