dying patient moved from single room. family walked in room on next visit same day to find a man in the bed. family asked where our mum was and why she had been moved. told a infectious patient needed the single room. fine we accepted that. but no signs on door and we walked back into a ward with 6 patients. could have infected them all. why was the door open for us to walk in? no respect for our mother who died the next day. we were huddled behind the curtains and had no room for all the chairs so left standing.
no respect of how infections can be passed we dont know what the other had but i had a tummy bug next day. can not say the cause might have been just an upset tummy but worried me.
