"no dignity"

About: St Richard's Hospital

Anything else?

i have a 95yr old client on boxgrove ward who has been in st.richards for the past 10 days she has her clothes and nightwear there but nobody has made any effort to dress her and she sits there in an openbacked hospital gown the only time she has been dressed was when i dressed her on day 4 of her stay i realise this is a medical hospital but surely a hca could at least make sure she has her own nightie on she is sat in a chair all day feet not elevated theses simple things are the basis of "care" no physio so although she was mobile on admitance she can now only walk with the aid of two nurses. i am disgusted and will be makeing a formal complaint
