Patients taking more care of each other than the paid staff take
Whilst on redwood 3 Wing of highbury hospital Nottingham I washed and bathed a fellow patient on approx 5 occasions. They unfortunately had an incontinence problem but I saw the staff berate them and said it was an attention thing.
I took it upon myself to respect and nurture my fellow patient and it was an honour to help out and bathe this person as it helped restore some dignity to a patient who was already suffering with their condition
I did complain about this at the time too
