He was found walking aimlessly down the road close by. He was admitted on Monday and refuses to stay. The sister has asked for stronger 'anxiety' medication and decided by herself to give him a pill from another patient, which I find disturbing. Our doctor phoned them this morning and gave a script for same or similar after the sister asked for it. I feel they are there to deal with these issues and should by now already have the experience in knowing how to handle patients who resist. I was shocked to hear that he could have slipped out and would have thought that they have the elderly monitored to an extent. They told us that men are more difficult than the women.
It is very difficult for us and we don't want him back possibly worse than when he went in, if they say they cant keep him. We are worried. Any similar experiences?
