In-patient surgery and reasonable adjustments for people with ASD
Hello, everyone. This is my first trip to this part of the forum. I "e-know" someone who has a number of complex conditions, including autism, and who needs to go into hospital for an operation, but is struggling to find a hospital - either private or NHS - which is prepared/able to make the necessary reasonable adjustments so that surgery and recovery can take place without the patient's condition deteriorating badly. The adjustments would need to include low-light surroundings, no noise, a separate room/side room, a parent being able to stay over to supervise and deal with care needs and advocacy, and generally sensitivity of the staff to these needs and to the patient's condition. But as yet it doesn't seem possible to find a hospital which can guarantee this and ticks all the boxes needed for the surgery.
Has anyone had experience of trying to get reasonable adjustments of this sort made? Can anyone recommend any organisations etc. which might be able to help with advocacy/negotiating treatment, etc., or even, if the worst comes to the worst, trying to take some sort of legal action or similar to get the hospital to comply?
