Aged told to pee in their incontinence pants
Elderly woman - Boris Bartels
11:18 CEST+02:00
Every single one of Norway's 18 patient ombudsmen is critical of the poor standard of care in Norwegian care homes, according to an investigation by TV 2.
The investigation follows claims by Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg that opposition parties have deliberately exaggerated problems with care of elderly people in the country. 
 
The channel cited complaints these ombudsmen had received from the families of patients, which included: "An elderly person being asked to pee in their incontinent pants", "irresponsible treatment", and "unlawful use of force".
