My sister is terminally ill and was admitted as emergency. I have slept in a chair next to her bed to ensure she receives the right care, dignity and respect she deserves.
To wait 20 for morphine whilst a nurse finishes texting on a mobile phone, waited 50 minutes for a jug of water, heaven's knows why, then to wash and clean my sister for almost a week before anyone offered to help is disgraceful. Staff are not trained in end of life care and for staff to tell me my sister is demanding when she makes every effort to get to the toilet is beyond belief.
