The administration are making the decisions to not hire staff which causes great stress for the people who are on the front lawn. I found the people I worked with who helped me to be pleasant and very helpful.
Story 2 in the private room next to my ward at the hospital there was a woman of Portuguese descent I believe she had someone with her all day looking after her needs because even through the walls I could hear her talking as if she was right beside me. She kept talking and most of the time she was reasonably coherent and I believed she was not in a great stress. I was wrong. I finally figured out some of her story she had fallen and broken her hip she had visitors who spend time with her during the day. Most of the time however, she was alone. What when she was alone she talked to herself and she talked very loudly. When the nurses gave her medication or help turn to move or tried to get her to move she felt threatened and her comments were this. "Stop stop stop you're trying to kill me." She would repeat that phrase for 45 minutes to an hour straight in a very loud voice. The nurses had left and she was on her room but she continued to voice the concern that they were going to kill her. She would also at some point when the nurses were in her room say to the nurse "Thank you very much you have been great help to me I am going home."
There would be no response or the response would be no you can't go home because you cannot walk. Even when the nurses left she would continue to say thank you for your help you have been very good to me but I am going home now and that phrase would continue very loudly for 2 hours. And then she would settle down. The problem I had was I did not know her story and she was very loud and especially at 2 o'clock or 3 o'clock or 4 o'clock in the morning it was very difficult for all of us to try and get to sleep.
