Elderly care failures

A major inspection of hospitals in England has attacked the way many elderly people are treated and found some NHS Trusts even broke the law.

The review was carried out by the Care Quality Commission which examined 100 hospitals.

Some failed even the most basic essential standards of care on dignity and nutrition.

Standards are clearly set out the Health and Social Care Act.

    people don’t need to take their own lives when they reach a certain age or have an illness they won’t recover from, just be an NHS patient left in a bed without food or water, they will despatch you by neglect.
