Avoidable overnight stays cost NHS £330m a year


I think they should be presented with a bill once they have been declared fit for discharge. If they know it'll cost 500 quid a night...I'm sure home would seem more attractive to patients and their families. We recently had one family ask us to keep their grandmother because her house was being refurbished and complained about our lack of understanding to the local paper. What evil people we are.
