"Poor treatemnt on ward E51"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

My gran is staying on ward E51. I'm really confused as to why the auxiliary nurse would take priority in put rollers in a patients hair over taking my,gran to the toilet. My gran was soaked in urine in bed whilst the nurse finished the ladies hair in the next bed. She also told us my gran is not blind although she's been registered blind for 12 year. She's very ignorant and rude. She shouldn't be working for the nhs. Claire
