With an aging population, seeing a loved one admitted to hospital can be a frightening and overwhelming experience.
Hospitals are sterile environments. Doctors do not oversee anyone patient. There is a lack of continuity of care.
Medical mistakes are common place. Loved ones can be overlooked. Their treatment needs can be ignored or worse.
