Update on my FiL..... he was released from hospital and back home by 3.30pm. His friend left him at 8pm and the next thing we hear is Pete got a phone call at 6.45 this morning from the Alarm people saying that his dad had activated the alarm at approx 6am but they were unable to get a reply from him. So Pete drove over and found his father unconscious on the hall floor, an ambulance was called and one of the paramedics said that it was a classic case of premature release from hospital. He should never have let go home so soon. Latest news is that if Social Services can arrange for someone to visit him twice a day for 2 weeks he will be going home this afternoon!!!! We still don't know what caused him to become unconscious and we are pretty certain he must have been in that state from shortly after his friend left last evening. I'm really beginning to despair of the NHS.
