Looking for the lost chord.
Hospitals are dangerous places at present. Hope he gets out of there ASAP.

I waz in hospital for 4 days in September. It was not at all dangerous. Probably because lots of medical procedures have been cancelled due to Covid. It was very quiet.

My missus hase been talking to my neice who works in Preston Hospital. She came off the phone so scared that she has banned me from going out on my bike. She is sheet scared that I'll have an accident and finish up in A&E to be followed by the cemetery. Maybe a bit alarmist, but I'm on the turbo for domestic harmony!
I only know three people who have had this virus, and they have all caught it in hospital.
Good to know the NHS is protecting us.

The NHS isn’t there to protect the population, it’s not a police force. It’s there to provide medical care. So presumably patients in hospital who unfortunately catch Covid are there for medical treatment that cannot be provided elsewhere

Hope @postman mate gets well soon, there’s usually a reason for non accidental falls and he’s in the best place for the medics to figure that out :smile:

Is he in LGI or Jimmy‘s? Father in law currently in Jimmy’s after a fall. He has covid which meant he hadn’t been eating causing him to be very weak hence falling over. He’s very good at faking being fine over the phone and FaceTime.
This is his 3rd fall in the last 4 years and Leeds hospitals are excellent. Hope your friend recovers soon

Falls and confusion, my mum had that last year, she went through a real bad patch with it. Turned out a water infection was the root cause. Seems so insignificant, a water infection but its outcomes are really drastic.
Were this the case with your pal, the hospital should soon see it.
Hope all goes well for him...and in turn you postman.

Hope when you speak to him, you can both put other at ease.

Second Ming the Merciless on not missing any appointments that have been made for you.

Good news. Sounds like the sort of accident that could happen to anyone of any age.
My father in law has been moved to a recovery hub in Yeadon. Unfortunately they are talking about him being there months rather than weeks.
