"No stimulation for patients"

I have been visiting 2 family members at Southmead over the past 6 weeks and am astonished how patients confined to bed are left just staring at the ceiling with no stimulation at all (ie where are the tvs/radios that were at Frenchay to help with rehabilitation and boredom? As a member of the NHS I am disgusted with Southmead staff. Also, I witnessed a few occasions where patients' dignity were of very little concern to the staff ie one elderly gentleman was trying to get out of bed with nothing on below his waist and this was not noticed by the staff until I brought it to their attention.
