Hospital Stopped Visitors for My Mum

Ask a Question

My mother in law is really unwell in hospital, she has not got the virus. But because of regulations my father in law, her husband for over 65 years is not allowed to visit. This is so sad, they have spoken via Whats ap which the nurses helped with. She may only have a few days with us, would you and wouldn’t you insist my father in law be allowed in?

Sorry to hear about your mother in law. If it was my partner of 65 years I'm afraid nothing would stop me being with them if they only had a few days left. Good luck with getting your father in law to be with her.

Totally this. If she only had a few days left, then I'd definitely be there.

First my sympathies. . . there is no easy answer and I'm not sure why the restriction on visitors is in place. I suppose though that the hospital are only doing what they consider is in the best interests of your mother in law and her husband and might have to be accepted.

Hopefully things get better.

Restrictions in place due to Coronavirus and because my father in law is over 80 and has health issues. He survived eight heart attacks this time last year and only has 33% of heart working. He did make a remarkable recovery.

eyeballkerry Well let's hope your mother in law makes a remarkable recovery too.

(and let's hope the preceding is taken in the way it's sincerely meant).

How awful for them, particularly because she has only a few days with us. I totally understand why they are doing the limited visitors etc. I work in a hospital and think it should be assessed individually. In this instance I think the rule should be overlooked as you will not get this time back. So sorry for you and your family at this difficult time. Sending lots of love

I would look for the hospitals PALS or version of. This is the patient liason team. All hospitals have a version of it. They are the people to go to if you have issues with your or a relative/friend's helpcare. I was going to them a lot when I was trying to get my dad's cancer treated back in 2014. There's also your local MP if no joy from them.

The government believe the elderly are the most vulnerable which is why they allow no visits even in care homes this will stop them from catching Corona virus.

I wasn't arguing - I was refuting LIES told about me - on the Topic where they were made. And wished to draw attention via tags to Tom And Kelsey to someone who had chosen to disrupt this topic. The "can you ban this user" topic wasn't started until after this - and I wasn't aware of it until I was nearly through the above reply. (which I thought I made quite clear).

Added by edit the following day lilyflower as you will notice Gary's little but disgusting spat has been removed as as his "can you ban this user" Topic. (I thought they might be) - if you wish to delete your comment above (perhaps edit down to a DOT or ☺) I will do the same with this reply perhaps this unpleasant matter, will then be at a complete end, and just two ☺s remain as a reminder.☺

Sorry to hear this. I’d insist visitation. I know it’ll be difficult for the nhs staff to accommodate, but usually they’re human and will sympathise and understand. All you can do is keep trying

My mother in law is still in hospital and has been moved to small ward which is good news for the family but now the hospital is on lockdown due to a member of the public walking into A&E with the virus. So no visitors allowed at all.

My husband got the call today from the hospital for him and all his brothers and sisters to get to the hospital, they were all allowed in as well as his dad. Unfortunately my mother in law is unable to communicate which is very sad but they have all got to see. The ward is classed as green not red this is why they were allowed.

Could your mum in law come home for her last few days at all perhaps? Maybe ask the consultant about this?
