TED KENNEDYS FINAL WISH FOR AMERICA?:

'Cruel and neglectful' care of one million NHS patients exposed (Rebecca Smith, 27 Aug 2009, Daily Telegraph)

One million NHS patients have been the victims of appalling care in hospitals across Britain, according to a major report released today.

In the last six years, the Patients Association claims hundreds of thousands have suffered from poor standards of nursing, often with 'neglectful, demeaning, painful and sometimes downright cruel' treatment.

The charity has disclosed a horrifying catalogue of elderly people left in pain, in soiled bed clothes, denied adequate food and drink, and suffering from repeatedly cancelled operations, missed diagnoses and dismissive staff.
