"nurses dont care"

About: Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother Hospital

My dad was in critical care for two months.than transferred to a ward which in my opinion was shocking..he was left in his own mess for hours..and when he told the nurse he had soiled the bed.she said you have to clean it up yourself in to busy..and he needs help clearing his throat with a suction which we asked for..he had to wait 45 minutes for it..and when it was done the nurse cleaned the suction tube out with a glass he was drinking from..disgusting.my dad cant walk to the toilet..so he has to have u a bed pan which is hard if the table is on the other side of room..when he was in critical care he had first class care..cudnt fault it.but the nurses on the ward do not care..its shocking..and as soon as he can start eating..i will personally get him out myself..discharged it not discharged..
