Discharged Patients Left in Hospitals

Around 122 discharged patients have been left languishing in corridors in both the hospitals Dr. Nélio Mendonça and Marmeleiros, as relatives are either unwilling or unable to pick up elderly family members.

Families are saying that with a lack of affordable care facilities, it is becoming increasingly difficult to look after elderly relatives.

It would also appear that the A & E department of the Dr. Nélio Mendonça Hospital is becoming a popular drop-off point.
