"Respect for the Elderly Non-existent on some wards"

About: Charing Cross Hospital

I am writing this on behalf of someone who is elderly, and whom I have witnessed being treated in an undignified manner at Charring Cross Hospital. Laying in excretement for what I would suggest was a long time based by my witness account and also being man-handled in an inappropriate manner not as you would expect in a hospital environment. I would definitely not want my relatives to stay in this hell hole of a hospital. I also witnessed a nurse discussing this person in an inappropriate fashion with other patients in the same ward, which I deem to be extremely unprofessional. It made me feel that this hospital is an unsafe environment for elderly patients.
