What could be improved
On Saturday 6th March, I visited a friend in Digswell ward. On entry to the ward I saw an elderly, clearly very poorly, man who was lying in bed in full view of the public, wearing only a pyjama top and a nappy! Where is the dignity in this for this poor chap? I thought the NHS was committed to ensuring dignity for their patients. Not in this case! Several of the nursing staff passed by this man and did nothing to restore his dignity. It would only have taken moments to cover him up. Dreadful!
