After a heart attack and stroke my dad ended up in Torbay hospital feb 12th and after initial treatment in Intensive care transferred to Midgley ward. He contracted severe respiratory failure ended up back in ICU. His care and attention has been lacking to say the best he was ignored by ward staff and left unattended and fell twice resulting in injury. my parents live in Torquay and we live in USA communication was difficult constant calling endless waiting on the phone and complete difference of updates. He was nil by mouth and offered food then we were told he was eating he had not even manged fluids.Staff on the ward which had a serious outbreak of infection attended my dad after attending another patients and failed to clean hands or wear gloves. I would never recommend this hospital.
