My grandparent's passing was very sudden, my grandparent was a relatively well person - had all their faculties about them and was shopping before being admitted to hospital earlier this month, we had the news broken to us the next day that my grandparent was terminal and the lymphoma was spreading quickly, they couldn’t eat or drink and was taken off all IVs that day.
When I asked a particular nurse if my grandparent could have their fluids back the nurse replied, why would I prolong their death? The nurse said this in front of the whole family and my grandparent. I feel the nurse's bedside manner was appalling and they also said we should take my grandparent home to die, to be clear my other grandparent is 80 and frail and my sick grandparent's wheelchair wouldn’t even fit in the unit!
I feel this nurse is a horrible being with no compassion and should not be allowed near dying patients and their families. This will live in the memory of my grandparent with all of us and especially my other grandparent, that we were cruel to prolong the life of a person that was fine 5 days prior to this.
Shame on the nurse and may nobody treat your loved grandparents in the way you treated mine!
