"So disappointed in weston hospital."

About: Weston General Hospital

I'm so disappointed with the care in weston hospital that I feel scared to leave my loved one there..... On arriving this evening my husband has been left knocked out on medications with his genitals showing leaving him with no dignity to which he would be devastated as he is a proud man.... He had no pillow no access to a drink or his table....... And he is completely reliant on using a bottle to go to toilet which was unreachable. Perhaps if they read the wall chart it would be relatively easy to understand he is not able to reach for things.... Sometimes trying to get a answer from someone is like asking politician a question? My time visiting weston hospital has been very distressing often leaving me in floods of tears concerned about the welfare of my loved one, hoping he is getting the care to maintain his dignity and human rights!
