My wife was in intensive care from 15/12/14 to 26/12/14. Whilst still in intensive care and on ventilator/ life support the doctor whose name I will not disclose yet for legal reasons decided that she should be moved to another hospital because they had only four nurses on duty when there should be five. He stated another patient could not be moved because I quote "he is almost recovered so we shouldn't move him" the fact the mans son was a litigation solicitor and tthe fact my wife was not almost recovered played no part in the decision, nor that she had had a heart attack because of anxiety due to lack of ability to breath through virus and infection . When voicing our concerns nothing was taken on board and the wards sister even accused my daughter of abusing her, which she did not. It was a fiasco and joke which could lead to further heart attack, it had taken ten days to reduce sedation on my wife which they wanted to do, yet on transferring were more than ready to increase sedation. Your life in their hands be it
