"Moving patients from ward to ward"

About: Watford General Hospital

Writing this on behalf oh my mum, just diagnosed with dementia ended up in a&e with a broken hip the bed she was on had dry blood on it, staff too busy. Mum had her op and after five days on clever ward she was moved to letchworth they left her sitting in a chair with her belongings stuffed in bags on the bed she did not know what was going on no one rang me I got to.her for visiting at 6 she was upset confused several days later I had visited with her for 2 hours I got a call at 9.25pm from another patient that they had moved her again this is no way to treat an elderly vulnerable patient there is more for me to compliance.about hospital is disgusting with no care given as far as I am concerned. The government (all oh them) should take a good look at the state oh the Nhs. My husband currently in hospital and they have woken him up in the night 3 times to move him! He has refused he has been there since 23/12 and has to wait until 30/12 for a camera procedure as he had a blockage which had caused him much pain and he is jaundiced..all of this is causing much distress for all
