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

Comment

I agree with the above and some relatives and friends like to participate in patients' care. not only has this benefits for everyone concerned but may also help reduce accusations of neglect and poor care. how can this be if in restricted visiting and especially in this day and age of 24/7 where people work of have family or other duties and may not be available during visiting hours imposed upon them. as for limiting visits to those with dementia or other mh problems and very sick patients and denying somebody access to a dying relative or friend, what remains to be said? it seems bosses rules have been allowed to overtake professional discretion and common sense.
