"Unhappy with my dad's care on ward C6"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as a relative),

My dad has cancer and fell and broke his leg.

He was taken to QMC A&E. He was then transferred to ward C6. This ward was really dirty and I felt the care was lacking.

My dad is now very ill in the City Hospital. He has a chest infection and a bed sore also uti. He did not have any of these problems until he went to C6.

Dad's bed sore was a grade 3 they said, then said it had cleared up. He was confused and strange but nursing staff just said he was tired. Also I feel he got the chest infection because he was sent home on a cold day and not well. I wish he had never gone to ward C6.
