An old friend is in hospital right now with a cardiac problem.
He's barely eaten at all in the last week, but nobody seems to care. He's already underweight and poorly due to his condition and now he's dehydrated too.
His bed has been moved almost between wards every day since he was admitted and the ward is often very noisy all night, brightly lit and chaotic. He's getting so physically compromised and exhausted, he won't be fit for surgery when they finally get around to it!
I'm afraid this just isn't a safe environment for cardiac patients. His wife is terrified for him but scared to complain.
