Lost in the Hospital
Yikes. Hospitals can be tricky and a maze of busy and caring people. Depending on the size of the hospital, it can still take a day or two to go from the mailroom to the recipient. And then the patient is moved to a new ward and the care package is left waiting at the wrong floor in the wrong ward. It happens. Nurses are caring for the welfare of their patients, not of our care packages. But fear not. They are always found and either sent back to us or kindly forwarded on to a home address (well, Private Patients anyways....). My best advice? Check how long your loved one is in hospital? Often it's less time then you'd imagine. A care package would be equally well received when the patient is sent home to rest and recover.....
Keen to find out where the parcel is in the hospital? Call them. Ask to speak to the mailroom or ask reception how mail is treated in the hospital and ask who is best to talk to to find the care package.
Pulling out of your hair, trying to find the care package? If you've spoken to the hospital and it appears to have vanished, we will do our hospital hustle and see if we can help locate it too. And if we cannot find it, we'll just package up a new one and send it. There is nothing more heart breaking then a loved one not receiving your surprise gift. And that is the bottom line.
