Having experinced some horrific attitudes and nonchalonse with London surgery staff and then witnessing neglect, bad management which lead to despair....I can say that I believe that the NHS has fallen into it's own trap. By shedding responsabilities and diluiting the formular by contracting
outsiders to provide nurses, meals and cleansing hospitals the begining of self distruction. Unfortunately with this came the circus act of life and death....on a tightrope...my stories going
back to the nineties show the sadest reality known to man. The trueth about those precious last
moments of life of a dying, often elderly person clutching with every last fragment of energy at their dignity..taking a last look at their life and loved ones as they slowly drift towards death.
To the dying person and their loved ones these final moments are precious.
If the hospital has failes the greiving parties may never recover..I witnessed some inapropriate practice in a surgery, hospital, private practices and even social survises.
All people in medical enviroments need to know about health and safety.
There have to be rules on cleaniness and being careful and this only comes from control
at source. You can not offer excuses in a hospital.
Excuses for abusive treatement, dirty hospitals and subjecting patients to a dangerous
enviroment. Example of a dangerous enviroment....very sick patients shareing an open
ward with a number of drug addicts who are at libity to come and go as they pleased.
Nurses were not only under strain due to being undertaffed....they are not trained to deal with
sudden violence and addictive behavoir.
So no contractors....DIY.
All people working with the sick need to be trained to achieve a reasonable bed side
The contractors taking care of the food for patients in hospitals are interested in
making profit....nothing more.
Patients need a balanced diet to recover for illness.
I have sat down at a big table a few times with a fairly large team at a major, major
HOSPITAL in London...without any answer....except...they are strong, they are a buisness
and they have no intention of you winning.
