    Concerns over possible abuse and neglect at Tauranga Hospital

    Concerns over possible abuse and neglect at Tauranga Hospital

    Associate Health Minister Casey Costello is asking for a report on the hospital - after a video's showed an elderly patient lying on the ground.

    It shows a patient in the mental health services for older people unit crying for help - as people walk past him.

    Ken Coull says says he's complained multiple times about women in his wife's ward only being showered every five days.

    He says he'd expect patients to be kept clean, fed and given medication.
