My grandmother was admitted to BRI after a fall. She was, at the time suffering from Metastatic Lung Cancer. Although the vast majority of the staff were fine I was distraught at the fact that a junior doctor put in place a DNR order withiut consultation or at least explanation (I am aware that a qualified Dr can do this but o consultation and discussion would have been courteous). That my grandmother was consistently referred to by the wrong name, that her notes had the wrong name on them and that a cleaner demanded I leave the cubicle whilst I was holding her dead body so they could 'clean up'. The most horrible experience of my life. This all occured on the Elderly Care Unit or whatever its called officially. I am aware that the vast majority of staff are professional and diligent but this was really shocking.
