Dad takes warfarin and needs his blood taken at, usually, two weekly intervals.
Even though the GP surgery is a very short walk away, he worked out that if he moaned he could get the District Nurse (not sure what they are called in US) to visit to do it. Strictly speaking hes not elligible because he's not house-bound. (To be honest, he can easily get to the GP). But that's Dad for you - if you can get someone else to do it why think about it yourself.
Best of all, he moans when they're not there at 9am - because he wants to go out to the betting shop! Of course, they're very busy and can come anytime during the day. Honestly, the moaning I get.
I've told him and told him they are VERY busy (my own wife is a District Nurse - fortunately in a different area - I hate to think what he'd expect from her otherwise!). I've told him if he doesn't want to walk, get a taxi (it'd be 2 mins) to the surgery. Nope. Refuses.
Yesterday he asked me to phone the Surgery on his behalf and make a complaint because he's asked them to come at 9am and they never do and to explain they HAVE to come early because he wants to go out. You couldn't make it up!
What do I do? (I'm NOT phoning the surgery!)
