Comment: I am visiting an elderly person

(See in situ)


I am visiting an elderly person

in hospital every week. The staff are paid care givers but have no natural understanding of providing care and comfort. The elderly are given minimum care because of short staffing. I am encountering people, nursing staff and doctors, who cannot seem to communicate verbally or in writing and cannot comprehend what is written. It is like something is missing in the brain that allows comprehension.

I told a staff member a concern and it was charted completely different from what I said. This person wrote it as one long run on sentence and no paragraphs for half a typed page.

That night I lay awake feeling as though I am living on some alien planet of dumb downed humans. What happened to intelligent people. Most politicians are now coming across as dumb downed idiots and air heads!
