"Father with dementia"

About: Queen's Hospital, Burton Upon Trent / Accident and emergency

My father was admitted with a urine infection he is in late stage dementia, he care was a disgrace by most from start to finish, no air mattress available for over 12 hrs , no communication between any staff , trying to give him tablets instead of syrup , not trying to feed him , the final straw was being sent back to then nursing home with 4 bed sores , one being dressed and not owning up to it , sister in charge of ward 3 didn't want to know and tried to blame the extremely caring nursing where my father has been care for for over a year , would I send my 80 yr old father back , not if I can help it , you treat your pet dog like they treated him
