My 88 year old Mother has been in hospital for a few weeks. During that time she has rarely had a drinking glass beside her when visited. Sometimes she has had no water. He walking sticks vanished after a few days. We requested that they be returned or she would fall. They were not returned and she fell. She is now badly bruised. To get to the toilet she has to negotiate an assault course of obstacles. I could go on but I am too disheartened. In spite of massive publicity regarding care of the elderly, even basic common sense seems to be lacking, never mind actual nursing care!
