"Dreadful hospital worse stroke unit, a disgrace"

About: Scunthorpe General Hospital

Mt step father was admitted to th HASU xmas day 2014, he had suffered a serious stroke he arrived at 11.25 and it took until 17.00 for any medication to be given toe hours just to be scanned when meant to guarantee 24/7 availability. They never discussed things with my mum about his care. Found him one day laid on the bed naked, no curtain drawn not even a pad on him. They brought cup of tea for him as the team forgot to put nil by mouth. When we wanted him moved back home they said ok but it took 48s before this happened no communication at all, then ambulance staff turned up out of the blue and said if you want him moved he has to go now. No one gave an explanation as to his treatment just got he is very ill. Worse hospital ive ever been to.
