What could be improved
My brother, who has cerebral palsy, had a brain biopsy yesterday. During the night another patient came into his cubicle - this caused him distress and concern - he was frightened. He had a toileting accident and his bed was changed. He had a 2nd toileting accident and the nurse called him a 'baby' and he was made to lie in his wet bed until the morning. He is being discharged tomorrow; we can't wait to have him home so that we can provide him with appropriate care. How can a 'nurse' demean a patient in such a way? They are nothing short of a disgrace to their profession.
I notice that other comments have received replies and neither of mine have. Why not? I would expect a response from someone of authority. I await to hear from the hospital.
