Due to DW Bendel’s rules about ‘escorting’ women everywhere, we have letters from diabetics warning of serious consequences to their health.

Even in the midst of a critical staff shortage, Bendel insists on a guard to go with the women everywhere. Diabetics must be tested twice a day for glucose levels BEFORE they eat, first at 5 am and then again at 3 pm. Due to sloppy communication, and not enough guards, these patients are regularly not tested until 9 am therefore waiting till then for a cold breakfast tray. In the afternoon, they can wait till as late as 5 or 6 pm, they allege.

According to these women, they report very erratic glucose levels, which is detrimental to their health and long-term prognosis.
