"disgusting treatment of an 81yr old!"

About: Good Hope Hospital

Absolutely disgusting treatment by the Dr and consultants. My 81 yr old mother was admitted with a chest infection. She was discharged 12 day's later with a uti, a grade 3 sore on her back and still had the chest infection. She was re admitted less than 24 hrs later by her GP. So a frail lady suffered being moved when she shouldn't have been. Disgusting!
