Not aware, or better use?

LETTER

Re: Disappearing medicine bags.

Thank you editor for pursuing this inquiry for me. The clinical care manager’s response was as I would expect from a politician.

I always have had every confidence that my discharge medication has been well researched for me and will be correct. My question was how do carrier bags, of good quality, designed for frequent use, disappear from a locked room! The bags had a sticky label with my name, date of birth and NI number stuck on to it.

Were the nurses not aware of the initiative that had been running a few years, or do they think that they can find a better use for them than the patient? Food for thought!
