Nurses say night-time hospital transfers are an 'abuse' of elderly

Several senior nurses have described the out-of-hours hospital transfers of frail, elderly patients in Belfast as an abuse of vulnerable adults.

They criticised the system, saying some patients were not being treated with the dignity and respect they deserve.

The complaint was made in a letter signed by eight senior ward sisters.
