A thread about visiting people in hospital especially disabled people.
First things first – if you can, do it. Go as often as you can – even if it’s for short visits.
The significance of those visits is not just social – that’s important too – but more important is safety.
Cumulatively I have spent years of my life in hospital and noticed significant difference in the care someone receives who has visitors and that of someone who doesn’t – especially if there is a conflict between what person wants & what hospital wants to do.
