What could be improved
The staff didnt know where my relative was (he wasnt in his bed)
He had just tried to kill himself by overdose but was placed on the chemo ward surrounded by old/dying people some of which were not of sound mind. This distressed him and our family greatly. No privacy to discuss his circumstances leading to his overdose which was an important issue which we needed to sdiscuss without embarrasment. I can appreciate that beds are limited but there was no compassion, given the reasons he was admitted. Yesterday the man in the bed next to him died and i feel that he shouldnt have been put in the situation where he had to watch someone else die after failing his attempts.
