When I think of palliative care, I think of kind, caring & compassionate staff. I was disgusted at how rude I felt the staff were (with the exception of a small number of staff, who clearly did love their job). Very rarely did staff come anywhere near you & when they did they didn’t speak or even acknowledge your existence - & even asked us to leave the room. Where is the caring & compassion? In my opinion, the staff are obviously not happy in their jobs & I believe there was clearly no communication between staff. This was not a place I wanted to visit. Even worse was the palliative care team moved my parent out the day before they died. Could they not recognise a dying patient? I feel very, very disgusted.
