"Never go to this hospital"

About: Frimley Park Hospital (Frimley)

Oxygen tube left on next to inoperable TV with wires hanging out (I think there was still a charge going through the wire). Incontinence pants left on the floor in the corner and handed to patients when needed. Elderly woman left in agony in chair for 2 hours as no sheets available for her bed. A build up of spit bowl, washing up bowl, breakfast, tea, wet towel, absorbent towels used for washing all on tray - at lunchtime. No request bell ever responded to. Total disregard for patients dignity or ailments. No-one knew what was going on. Fire drill - Thursday morning - nurses disappear - doors shut automatically. Patients unaware of procedure - panic! Bed not made from Tuesday to Friday. Told to wash in bed and wet sheets will be changed - never were. Disgusting conditions.
