"Patients are being put in the middle of bays"

About: Southmead Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

Visiting my grandmother in Southmead recently. The hospital was putting extra patients in the four bedded bays. This feels inappropriate and clinically unsafe.

So that we can look into these circumstances further, please would you be able to provide further information.

It would be helpful if you could provide us with the date and ward your grandmother was admitted to.

If you email me with this information then we will be able to provide a more thorough response.
