A nurse, who has worked at Jersey's General Hospital for 42 years, says patients are not dying in dignity because of current facilities.
Wendy says the hospital is 'not getting end of life care right' because patients are spending their last few moments in a bay with around five other patients.
She added that this does not give families the privacy they need.
A Jersey doctor says the prospect of the current site is the 'most distressing for patients'.
Doctor David Ng described the building on the Gloucester Street site as 'disturbing and disruptive'.
He added that an open site such as the waterfront or Warwick Farm would be best.
The current hospital site is 'still on the table' according to Jersey's Infrastructure Minister.
Deputy Kevin Lewis says following the loss of two planning applications, the Gloucester Street site is still an option for where the new hospital could be based.
The Managing Director of Jersey's General Hospital says patient safety is a 'challenge'.
Rob Sainsbury said the 'exceptional staff' work hard every day to ensure the environment and patient safety is maintained, but daily challenges make this difficult.
