General standard of nursing care we experienced was poor, with a few redeemable exceptions. No insulin available in hospital, it had to be fetched from home – no nitrazepam when required. The patient’s drugs were all taken into hospital with her, then locked away. There was no way the patient could have known when they were running out!
