"Left lying in a bed for over a week; no treatment"
About: Tameside General Hospital Tameside General Hospital Ashton Under Lyne OL6 9RW
My elderly mother was admitted to Tameside, moved from the MAU to ward 41. She was promised a chest drain for fluid on her lung. It didn't happen. Why? Staff shortages. Bank holiday. More staff shortages. Because she is old, because she is frail and weak, she is ignored and left to the mercy of staff shortages with no care for the incredible boredom and depression that sets in just lying in a sterile ward for over a week. As usual everyone passes the Buck and no one takes responsibility. Totally unacceptable.
