What could be improved
My elderly father was admitted via paramedic call out with an acute UTI. He waited in A&E for about 6 hours before an Assessment bed was available. His current medication was wrongly recorded so for a week, in 3 different wards, he was given medication not prescribed for him. No-one assisted him with feeding so his weight has dramatically dropped. Despite the UTI making him incontinent he was left to sit in a chair all afternoon in urine soaked clothing.
Is this really any way to treat people?
