"Worried about treatment of my parent."

Posted by Worried man (as ),
My parent has been in hospital now for several weeks and recovering from surgery.
Since being in there my parent has deteriorated very significantly which has caused major concerns. Doctors don't return calls and I believe nurses can't do much without the opinions of a doctor. The nurse care has been good but as far as I'm concerned everything else has been absolutely horrible.
Even to a point where my parent was discharged the morning after a medical emergency code was called then hours later rushed back. Very, very poor decision.
I have called heaps of times and asked heaps of questions but all to fall on deaf ears? ? ?
Why can't I get answers and why can't tests be done to see what is happening etc to my parent's health and why they have sufficient weight loss - 6 kg a in 4 weeks? ? ?
I understand that's the health system and at the end the doctors and nurses are definitely under paid for the work they do but we are all humans and I only want answers.
I'm not here to blame anyone but my concerns are not being met or answered.
I'm really, really, really worried about my parent's health deterioration and the fact that it's getting worse.
Please assist me.
