I visited A&E in July with my Uncle who been bought to hospital by ambulance from his care home.
The medical care that he received was good but my uncle is incontinent and the staff were aware of this, he was in A&E for 7 hours and I asked on several occasion if someone could change him I was told someone would come but they didn't, he was changed by myself and a nurse who was going to take him to the ward.
I understand the department is very busy but I think it is unacceptable that elderly person who is unable to communicate is left in this condition.
