As per the latest information, around one in five hospital patients had to share a sleeping ward with someone from the opposite gender.
Thousands of patients are going to emergency care wards, where there are patients of opposite sex as well. This still has been happening, regardless of a drive that had been taken up by the NHS, so as to increase the number of single rooms for patients.
A latest study established that in the previous year, 18 per cent of patients received treatment in facilities that are blamed for corroding their pride and privacy, predominantly for the elderly.
As per the figures that the latest finding shows, there are thousands of those patients who are sharing sleeping wards with opposite gender.
Approximately, one in four patients shared the same lavatory, which is down from 30 per cent in the preceding three years.
For emergency patients, 21 per cent informed that at first they shared mixed sex space, which was down from 29 per cent in 2008.
The Tories have assured that they would increase the number of single rooms in hospices, in order to make sure that patient dignity and privacy facilities are all provided.
