General hospital care for people with learning disabilities is strongly emphasized in recent health policy.
Ten sets of parents were interviewed about their experiences of general hospital inpatient care for their adult sons and daughters with learning disabilities.
Findings in the areas of placement, occupation, basic nursing care, feeding, toileting, nursing attitudes, staffing and procedures are presented.
Recommendations are made for changes to reported nursing practice to improve the quality of general hospital care for people with learning disabilities.
