Our mom is in hospital having undergone major bowel surgery. Weare trying to get a her a single room where we can then get a day bed put in to enable us to stay with her. The ward is full but we wondered if anyone else had this experience. The staff are good but they are so short staffed and don't seem to realise that dementia patients can't press the buzzer for assistance. We are worried that something may happen in the night as she has a bad chest infection at the moment and would be unable to get assistance quick enough. Or anything else may happen.
