What I liked
My Grandfather has been on ward for the past 5 weeks and I have noticed a dramatic change in his level of care. He is left unwashed and choking due to a lack of help clearing his throat until a family member arrives to prompt the nurses. He has a good mental state which tends to deteriate the longer he is admitted due to a lack of engagement from staff. It seems he is better cared for at home under his nurses who only visit twice a day. One nurse who definately has some training issues who my grandad tells me never returns when asked to help. I hope you spend some time looking into this as a matter of urgency as my granfather will not be here forever.
