In some circumstances, a patient’s behaviour may become challenging or difficult due to the symptoms of their condition.

Hospital staff are skilled in caring for these patients and have strategies in place to manage difficult situations.

If you are concerned about a patient’s behaviour, speak to the nurse in charge.

If your loved one has dementia, we will ask you about them so we fully understand their communication style and behaviour to ensure we provide the care they need.
