I have witnessed NHS neglect in a Glasgow elderly care ward. Our frail loved ones are being put on the Liverpool pathway prematurely, being declined basic care, fluids, food, IV fluids for dehydration; UTI being allowed to go secondary, and damaging kidneys, being allowed to be in pain without pain relief.
Also consultants withholding diagnoses from elderly's guardian, bullying using underhanded tactics to get carers to put their loved ones into NHS Continuing Care Homes WHERE they can be neglected even more and be denied medical care.
We the undersigned call on the Scottish government to put a stop to elderly neglect in NHS Hospitals and to stop all hospitals using Liverpool pathway prematurely.
The Stop NHS elderly neglect and abuse petition to 2000 was written by elizabeth nevitt and is in the category Health at GoPetition.
