What I liked
my father has been 'treated' in PDH and ECH on an off for the last 8 months. He is routinely left hungry thirsty and dirty. He is bed ridden and totally helpless, totally dependent on the good will of others. Some of the nurses are compationate, hard working, caring and a credit to the vocation. All too many are lazy, indifferent and slovenly. Doctors are generally unavailable, arrogant, don't listen or offer any meaningful information.
The wards stink. The food is tepid tasteless and not fit for pigswill. In fact my father said he'd fed pigs better.If it's not in glutenous gravy its wrapped in orange breadcrumbs. The results of these stays have been dreadfull and he has come out worse than when he went in. He has been robbed of all quality of life by PDH and ECH. He went in able to walk and use a toilet. He came out bedridden and incontinent. This was soley because he was just left in bed and helping him to walk regularly was too time consuming. Physiotherapy was a joke. I could go on and on. I am disgusted with his neglect.
