The lack of nurses in AAU white 1 was well lets say upsetting.
I understand this is a high care ward but I feel that the care my grandad was given was not upto the standard it should be.
Also how other patients were being cared for, for example not having a urine bottle and having called for a nurse and them not coming having to use either a cup or water jug or sit there and wet themselves and this is happening daily, on any level where is that ok for this to happen.
The problem you have with this ward is the lack of nurses and also the same nurses are not working in this ward so you dont get the same care everyday, which when I have spoken to the nurses find this upsetting as well, that they can not give the care they want to because they dont have enough time to do it as they are under staffed
