"not a nice to be if old and ill"

About: Medway Maritime Hospital

What I liked

mau ward where much better in there treatment

What could be improved

food could have gravey with old a people could not swalow it as it was dry in lots of cases

Anything else?

one off the staff very push about moving father out and in to care home with hind sight would have better for him

food and care was better

staff sighed to say that all his thing was transfered to home found dressing gown and slipper under chair in milton ward when i found them missing

not enough people to feed patients as most where red trays feel that if we had not been there to feed him he might have not been fed this is a management problem not staff

he was in 4 to5 weeks

we was keeped waiting about week or more before we where told that he had lung cancer
