""Pick it up yourself""
Posted by living in fear of NHS (as ),
My 83 year old friend was dying of a rare blood disease, was very weak and could not stand unaided. His blanket fell onto the floor so he asked the nurse for help. She, a teenager,shot back "Pick it up yourself" He had to wait over an hour before another nurse picked it up for him. He always felt the cold badly,even more so when he became ill; a common symptom. He died three days later.
