There was ":NO" communication between the doctors in the hospital. My Dad was sedated until the day before he left the hospital. We found out that he only should have been sedated for two days. The nutritionist... more told the doctor that my Dad was not eating. The doctor came in to inquire about him not eating and I told him that the did not like the menu that he had been served but had eaten all of his breakfast. I had to tell four different doctors the same thing about my Dad. There is "NO"communication between doctors with in the same hospital. No notes were been read from the week end doctors on call. My Dad was discharged from one flour to another. I could not see him until the next day. Once I found out where he was I had to come back the next day due to the hospital visitation policy. When I when to see my Dad the next day, I told the doctor on the 6th floor that I was not satisfied. After I said that, his attitude turned hostile towards me. He was discharged the next day partially sedated and not able to walk. We received "NO" discharge instructions. I applaud the RN,s, C&A"s. They were very attentive to my Dad. They showed genuine care and concern.
