Poor care at QMC

A sad posting on patient opinions about poor care at the Queens Medical Centre.

“When I was admitted to the ward nobody showed patients how to use the call button, so elderly ladies couldn’t be heard in the night calling for help…

From what I saw, where patients need cot sides to prevent them from falling out but are able to get their legs through the top bars, then I think cot cushions should be used. The lady opposite me had dreadfully damaged legs…

Due to apparent staff shortages, the nurses have to take their breaks at set times. From what I saw, if this conflicted with feeding a patient, then the patient got left with only a mouthful of food or so and the same applied to assistance with drinks. Not so good when the patient isn’t able to feed themselves!”

    That sounds terrible! I’m sorry your partner had such a difficult time. I always worry though about elderly people who may not have anyone who can look out for them and raise issues on their behalf.
