Recently had to have family attend this hospital and it's shocking! My aunty is currently in their now and as a dementia patient she isn't getting the care she needs! They said she'd had a mini stroke, has pneumonia and a blood clot and the only treatment she is receiving is oral antibiotics for the pneumonia...she's struggling to swallow, no information has been handed over so nurses don't even know about the clot and stroke. She really isn't getting the right care. Just because a person has Alzheimer's does not mean that they should be treated the same as any other patient.
