My husband was admitted to Surrey Memorial Hospital on the night of June 22 with two severely broken ankle bones. He needs to have an operation to insert pins and plates to realign the bones and then get a cast.
He has laid in bed in the orthopedic ward with these broken bones since then. He is given an IV during the day instead of food just in case they have room to operate on him. Then at 9 p.m. they let him eat as there is no chance of him being operated on until the next day.
As of June 26 – four days since he was admitted – there is no end in sight. “Maybe tomorrow” seems to be the mantra.
I am sure you wouldn’t want to lie in bed with broken bones and have no clue when you would get them reattached. What is going on at SMH?
