"Concern over care of relative at Edith Cavell Hospital"

About: Edith Cavell Hospital / Older people's healthcare

(as a relative),

Has anyone else had experience of an elderly relative "throwing" themselves from a chair while in ward 8 of the Edith Cavell Hospital in Peterborough?

You would think this is an isolated case but having communications with other relatives it seems that there appears to be wave of elderly people doing this. Although disputed by the staff that this happened, it seems strange (or rather unfortunate) that it does appear on a documented assessment given as the reason for my relative being confined to her bed.
