"Nothing"

About: Warrington Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

Nothing

What could be improved

Everything.

The care my Dad is getting is NON-EXISTENT.

He has not had a wash since he was admitted on Friday morning (29.1.10). He is such a clean man and likes to have a wash and the Nurses "apparently" asked him if he wanted a wash and (they said) he refused but we don't believe that for a second but even if he did refuse, they should still wash him. IT'S TOTAL NEGLECT.

My Mum had to give him a wash herself, tonight (1.2.10) and when he brushed his teeth while sitting down in his wheelchair he spat out grey fluids. (DISGUSTING) He has not got any energy to manoeuvre himself and the Nurse's know this and yet they have been leaving him on his own while he has been on the toilet. Due to

this, my Dad fell on Friday night and there were no Nurse's around to help him, as usual.

He has bruises all over his wrist and arm and had blood in his fingernails.

His T-Shirt has two times now had dry blood on it and it was left on him and so we, his family, had to change his pyjama top, underpants and pyjama bottoms.

His bedding is soiled with urine because he cannot get to the toilet independently and also blood because they are not checking his dressings.

Also when he was first admitted there, there was a former patients urine soaked underpants in his cabinet.
