I was recently in hospital for personal reasons but what I want to say is the treatment of another patient who was in the opposite bed to me. She was a very elderly lady who was very confused as to where she was and kept trying to get out of bed. I constantly had to get out of bed or use the emergency call button to get her some help as the nurses were just not around and they were well aware of what this elderly lady was doing. I'm not saying that the nurses were neglectful but perhaps very understaffed.
