No initial liason with close relative. Confrontational senior nurses who should have recommended that i see the resident doctor, but instead appeared to take over my relative's care, not only ignoring everything i repeatedly said but totally ignoring the fact that the patient was rapidly dteriorating & making exactly the same mistakes that the hospital she had been transferred from initially made. they never confront me with their concerns yet quote rules & regulations that were to the detriment of my relative's well-being. i have now becomer so ill from worry, sense of helplessness, & sleepnessness that i am not able to visit. the senior nurses are not medically trained so should never ignore any detioration in their patients without consulting both the doctor & the patient's live-in carers.
