"I would not recommend Maidstone ..."

Anything else?

I would not recommend Maidstone hospital to any member of the public escpecially elderly people. My grandmother was admitted on sunday with stomach pains and hearts problems she had bloods etc taken and they couldn't find anything wrong so instead of investigating further they discharged her only for her to be admitted monday morning at half 5 with the same problems. It is now monday evening (21:46pm) and again they are discharging her as they cant find what is wrong! It seems to me that because she is old there not really bothered about her and just need the bed space. What person in there own mind lets a frail 78 year old lady be released from hospital at this time of night! These people shouldn't work in the national health sector they clealry dont give a dam.
