My disabled 76 year old Mum was sent home from Ward 3 on the floor of a taxi.
She was unable to get on the seat and the nurse did not get help. She endured a 25 minute transfer to her home on the floor of the taxi with her head between the nurses legs!
I am disgusted that her dignity was treated in the way that not even an animal would expect. This has been passed onto the director of nursing who has not yet responded in writing. I am sickened and my mum is still upset.
