"Maidstone hospital"

About: Maidstone District General Hospital

My husband is in the hospital now- he was transferred to another ward on Friday night after mid night , which is totally unacceptable. He s being barrier nursed and was moved from a room with its own bathroom to a tiny side room and told he had to use a commode! This des not make sense as moving barrier nursed patents around a hospital is not good practice. Sadly respect and dignity does not mean , when someone is using a commode insisting they tell you at that moment what they want for supper! No one seems to know which consultant s responsible for my husbands care , I could go on, but I am too upset . Paramedics were excellent , a/e were good. Assessment unit outstanding! Then sadly bad since.
