Another update–Natalie is Worse

Please keep Natalie in your thoughts, poor love is quite poorly, State of play when we went in to visit her was that she hadn’t been seen by a doctor, I went to the desk and asked when the doctor would be there and they said they would chase it up, after 2 more request and a couple of hours the one that arrived was full of apologies, they had missed her when they did the rounds.

It seems that she should have been getting drops and hadn’t and he seems to have now took her under his wing to sort out her pain relief and get some scan of her face done.

Anyway I’ll let you judge for yourself how she is looking.

As you can see, it is worse.

How on earth did they miss her on the rounds!!!!
When my daugther, a nurse, worked in the hospital, each nurse was allocated patients to take care of. Sure the nurse that was allocated to Natalie should have noticed that she hadn't been seen.
Hope Natalie begins to improve soon.
Thinking of you all.

I had an awful infection in my face when I was about 15. I was so embarrassed, it swelled to the point where my eyes and nose were all one big swollen section. I couldn't even see. The puffiness went out as far as my nose. I was already on antibiotics but when I went in the second time, they had to cut open my forhead, and all the infection just squirted out everywhere. It was so gross. They stitched me up, wrapped me up in gauze gave me more antibiotics and sent me on my way. I was fine in the long wrong, but it looked like a swarm of bees had attacked my face.
I hope your daughter heals soon, and they tend to her better. The service is disgraceful in some hospitals.

Mad Mary said...

I too cannot believe how she was missed out on the Dr's round. Good job you were there to get it chased up and now lets hope she is getting some pain relief. Lots of love & hugs to you and Natalie.

Oh Jak, this is not good. The medical system is appalling. I hope she now gets some relief and it starts to get better. You are all in our prayers. Take care, luv Ursula XXXX

Merry said...

Poor thing...that is very sad that you had to chase up a doctor so often to get your daughter checked out. I so hope that she has some relief soon. Thinking of you all.

Tammy said...

So sorry for her and you! We'll just have to pray harder.

ladyannehoward said...

Hello Jak,
I think it is really bad of the hospital and really you should make a formal complaint. I did when it was similar for us when my Mum was in hospital and I got quite a bit changed there and all for the good. It is worth doing, not enough folk complain about the treatment in our hospitals which is sad.
I will continue with the healing for Natalie and hope she is feeling a little better this evening...
Love ~ Lady Anne xx

Peggy said...

OMG! My thoughts and prayers are with your daughter. I hope they find a solution soon.

Net said...

Oh wow that looks so painful Jak. Poor girl I hope they get her sorted quickly. She hasn't dyed her hair recently has she? Someone I know had a similar looking thing which was an allergic reaction.

Mary Roberson said...

JAK, if there is one thing I've learned as a health care worker and patient--its that nobody is going to have as much as a vested interest in you, as you (or your family advocate). I'm so glad Natalie has you looking out for her. I don't know about the UK, but in USA-short staffing, budget cutbacks, insurance regs, sicker patients, longer working hours, mandatory overtime, etc. have created a less positive patient care experience.

Continue to advocate for your daughter and work with the staff to see that she gets the care she needs. They will appreciate it and Natalie will get better care (hopefully). Sending up prayers for her. So glad you took this all very seriously (as you should). I've had something similar on my face that started with a spider bite (I still have the scar), but luckily I did get better. God Speed!

THE HOOSIER STAMPER said...

Oh my goodness! Will sure keep praying that she gets better soon!!! Sometimes you have to stay on top of things and ask if you don't hear from them. I know we had to with my parents and anyone else. They get so busy and so much put on them sometimes that they have more than they can keep up with. They try to have one person do the work of three! You just about have to keep track yourself. Hugs! Leah Ann

Dawn Frost said...

I really hope the drops start working because her face looks very sore!

Joey said...

oh Jak, your poor love, I really hope Natalies face heals real soon, she must feel awful and so down, big hugs. Joey x

Denise ~ Paper Ponderings said...

So strange!! I've been thinking about her all day long...and I'll be praying for her! Hugs!!!
