I felt I was not consulted at any stage of my parent's stay, only on the day it was to happen and was told that they would be transferred by ambulance. Was later told by the social worker that my parent's bed would not be available the following day at the residence then the social worker reinforced their statement to me, and, I felt, spoke over the top of me.
I felt I was unheard, they made me feel inadequate as they also told me that they had discussed it with the medical team late one week and that it was planned for early the next week with no apparent mention of it to me. The hospital staff also failed to tell me that I was not to take my parent to their residential care early as it was their breakfast and they would be very busy.
So in short, I felt there was no communication from anyone at the Geraldton hospital relating to the discharge or time I should have picked up and taken my parent to their destination.
