My Husband is still in clacton hospital. He's suffering from a rare dementia and although he fidgets when he needs to urinate no-one offers him a bottle. due to his illness he cannot call for help or press the buzzer, so fidgeting is the sign he can give. consequenses are he is permanantly soaking wet and in a state of anxiety. Mind you i've seen other patients press the alarm for help, sometimes for as long as 30 mins.. One day when I visited he actually had his feet in a puddle water which he had spilled on the floor. His socks and feet were drenched and very cold. No I really don't think the sick elderly are getting the dignity & respect they deserve. what happened to their civil & human rights?? My husband has been in clacton hospital for 3 months now and the staff are still not used to his needs..
