My Sister is in hospital as she has Schizopherina she resides at Lister project near were i live but for the past 3 weeks she has refused to take her Cloperazine she was very unwell in that all her thoughts were wrong and jumbeled and i could not understand her when i went to visit her last week.

Who do i need to get information from as far as the above and what actually happened when she was how she was is the cause off her deteriation at lister how do i proceed with the above 

My other Sister who lives a long way away is 
Pressuring  me to Sort the above out myself 
And i think this is Putting more pressure on me 
As i dont know how to deal with my ill sister as like me she has differant problems its not fair for me to sort this out on my own.
Who do i need to contact for Support.

    I think the only people you can speak to would be who ever is in charge either of the ward or your sisters care.

    Hi @Sparklebright63 How are you today?

    I'm sorry to hear your sister is unwell in hospital.  To find out more information about the events that led to her admission, you could ask to speak with the named nurse/manager of her residence as it's likely they will have record keeping procedures in place.  And as a minimum, I'm sure they'd be happy to have a conversation with you about what happened and answer any questions you might have.

    Have you spoken with your other sister about how her input is making you feel?  It's a lot for one person to manage, so perhaps explaining that you're doing your best and will update her as and when you have news will make her give you a little space?

    Please let us know how you get on and I hope you are ok.  Also, you might notice, I've amended the wording of your title to help others see what's happening with you and offer their support.  Take care.
