I live in Salmon Arm. My brother was brought to Royal Inland Hospital because he was suffering a stroke.
His wife of almost 50 years was not allowed to stay with him. I delivered some items to the hospital for my brother.
I was not allowed to go in, of course, and was not even guaranteed he would get the things I brought.
While waiting to see if what I brought would get to him, a gentleman arrived and was allowed to visit his wife.
When I questioned this, I was told it was because she had delivered a baby.
My sister-in-law, who has been my brother’s right arm for 50 years, is not allowed to visit him and not sure if he is ever going to return home, yet a man who is almost assured of seeing his child in the next couple of days is allowed in?
I was told if my brother was palliative, his wife would then be permitted to visit — when he would be in a state in which he probably wouldn’t even know she was there.
What makes one person’s situation different from those of others?
This neeeds to be fixed.
