"Put patients first, not beds"

Posted by Beds instead of people (as ),
My 96 year old gran who has been unwell for over a week and has not been out her bed was transferred back to her nursing home in the evening on a wheel chair by the Red Cross.
When she arrived at her NH questioned why she was in a chair and really drowsy. Red Cross were told she has been walking about the ward.
I contacted the ward and the nurse informed me that they were under pressure to get beds. So much for nurses being the patient advocate.
