The quality and the neglect of the care plan in the community would be determined in part on why the person was kept in the hospital in the first place, would it not ? In other words, it's one thing caring for a fairly young person who is discharged from hospital after, say, breaking his leg. A fairly 'old' person discharged into the so-called community recovering from the same injury would beget a care plan comprising more tact, insight and genuine understanding into those special needs. To gain that insight into the special needs just means draw the contrast between young and old ...male and female ...frail and weak in a family and living alone .... and tailor the care plan from there. Human beings are all different in their special needs. And surveys and conferences in hotels, etc. do drain confidence in the health service. Usually all that is needed to make a care plan work comes through common sense talking with the patient. Assume that the patient sits somewhere beneath your imagined superior intellect and you will draft a care plan fit for a dog. It's easy enough, of course, to impose a ridiculous care plan on a poor soul who, recovering from injury or illness, is no shape to negotiate. For that reason I did mention somewhere tact and common sense work. At Wigan Infirmary should you manage to negotaite your way through the crowds of people who talk like doctor's receptionists' and whose personality always insist they know best, you may reach the simple and straightforward nurses and doctors who do understand all this. It's just a pity by the time you get to sit down and speak with such human beings after running the rainbow gaunlet, so to speak, of questionnaires and queries your faith in the health service naturally wanes. At Euxton Hall discharge is always accompanied with a care plan that is tailored from the fabric of the special needs of the individual patient. The same thoughtfulness the Priory exercise too. In other words, going private is popular. In other words, for some apparent reason, if you are able to treat a person with money somehow they seem to want to listen. But Wigan Infirmary, as far as I am concerned, is much better if not equal in relation to the private establishments. The nurses and doctors at Wigan are simple, good-natured folk. So are the auxillary workers there too. I am not an oncologist. In other words, cancer is not my speciality. Even so, there is a cancer running the length and breath of health treatment in Wigan and it doesn't need a medical degree to work it all out . How you treat it, is another matter.
