"unfair treatment of the elderly"

About: Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS Foundation Trust

(as the patient),

Whilst being an in patient I was shocked to witness what I thought was an uncaring mistreatment of the elderly patients on my ward. It seemed as if some of the night staff nurse had no time for them. Some of the people on the ward appeared to be constantly ignored and spoke very sharply. I witnessed some people given tablets but not given any water, not taken to the toilet etc
