What I liked
My Mum went into a ward.
From a loving mother who was happy
articulate and joyful. After her days in the Ward
being brought in through poor health. Her health had improved - however, she became bedridden. I kept a diary as I found her lying in her own urine on several occations. . No address was made to a leg that began to turn. They became not interested in my Mum who had become bereaved my the loss of my husband six months ago., The Ward is so far removed about caring and more interested in money.
I am a very upset daughter - who is trying to not
become hateful to a system that has its failings.
What could be improved
The system could improve by not thinking of
money but by thinking of the individual
and the individual needs.
Please re-think about
the approach towards the elderly. The
treatment so impacts on the loved ones they
leave behind and we have to live with the NHS failings.
