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


Lily44 | 2-Mar-2015 4:31 pm That is both appalling and also totally-out-of-order: NOBODY - anywhere ! - should prevent a person from staying with a loved-one who is believed to be 'dying within hours'. It is very important, to not do that type of thing - however, there has been a lot of work on end-of-life during the past 8 years: I hope [but I am not sure] that would not happen, now. In fact, I'll ask Bee Wee by e-mail (the NHS England end-of-life clinical lead) if she is any more sure than I am, that it wouldn't happen now (Bee is absurdly busy, but if she gets round to answering, I think she will say what I have said (I would hope it wouldn't happen, and I wouldn't expect it to happen now').
