MAU Acute admission last November. Food totally unacceptable.
Carers not evident on ward, and appeared busy when his relatives could find someone to ask for help but not clear what they were doing. Certainly not assisting patients. Was not shown the nurse call system buzzer.
Night staff sat outside open ward door and had audible conversations with each other. He feared he would have another heart attack and wouldn’t be able to attract staff’s attention.
