"Care of older people"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

Very poor care IMHO, my father was in and tbh I was shocked at what I seen. He got pressure sores which were dressed once in nearly 2 weeks then left without further treatment! Left lying in bed with no encouragement whatsoever to get up and sit in a chair, kept waiting for 20 mins for a urine bottle and subsequently had an accident and was then put in incontinence pants. OK some older people maybe slow but they still human beings. I am still worried about the way my father was treated in this hospital.
