Carers gain 24/7 access to dementia patients with nurse-designed 'passport'


A lovely idea, however I sincerely hope this is not a 'back door' way of abrogating the duty of care for the dementia sufferer in hospital. Remember some of these carers never get a day or night off at all. Surely we don't begrudge them a little break while secure in the knowledge that their loved one is having their personal needs met.
