"Father on ward 44"

About: Pinderfields General Hospital

This ward is currently understaffed with levels unsafe.

My father is a vulnerable old man who is confused due to having a severe chest infection.

He is also amputee and very confused.

He is on many drips and nasal tube which he pulls out daily unsupervised.

He has been allowed to fall out of bed trying to leave even after raising with ward manager.

Nurses don't know which way to turn its very sad and nothing to be proud of.

During visits patients dignity is diminished due to lack of staff and vulnerable, I'll and confused patients.
