STRENGTH IN NUMBERS

Strength in Numbers dedicated to my late mother Kay

Stranded in his pyjamas and covered in a flimsy blanket, this is how a 95-year-old great-grandfather was left ‘in agony’ for TEN HOURS waiting to leave hospital after pneumonia

Huddled in a wheelchair, wearing just his pyjamas and a thin dressing gown, a filmsy blanket draped over him. Stranded, ‘in agony’, freezing and longing for a bite to eat. That was how 95-year-old Arthur Wilson was found, 10 hours after he was told he was to be discharged from Warrington Hospital after suffering from pneumonia.  The great-grandfather, who was waiting to be taken back to his care home, was found in the ‘freezing’ discharge lounge, where he had been left all day. His daughters said they are ‘outraged’ after seeing their elderly father, who had been admitted two weeks earlier, sitting in his pyjamas covered with a single blanket. Mr Wilson, who suffers Paget’s disease – a painful bone disorder – had not been fed all day and was left ‘in agony’ from sitting in his wheelchair.

Would the staff in that hospital left their own father in that condition? It’s just shocking how they have become distant to the human race with care and compassion

  1. words just fail me, all the staff at that hell hole that calls it’s self a hospital should be prosecuted along with the get rich “I sit on all committees that I can but know nothing about anything” merchants. It just make me sick that these faceless, gutless people will more than likely not even get a slap on the wrist for what they have done or are responsible for. I better stop now as I am getting more angry by the second.
