This happened to me last October whilst I was back in hospital yet again.
I dont know why, but for some reason I kept my money in my fag case which had a zip compartment at back, and its a good job I did.
I went out the ward for a fag, and when I came back, I noticed my handbag had been moved. I looked in it and straight away, noticed my purse was gone.
Now, my room was beside the nursing station, and there were about 6 nurses there when I left and returned, so how none of them saw anyone going into my room is a mystery, as they would have had to pass them.
Straight away I informed them, they got the police to come see me and that was that.
Then about 5 weeks later, I got a call from Falkirk CID to say they had caught the person, she was from Glasgow, and was a pro at this.
I never got my belongings back, I didnt mind about the purse, but the stuff inside I can never ever replace.
So from now on, if I have to go back into hospital, the bag stays at home as does my purse.
