"I was having my second child in ..."

About: Royal Stoke University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was having my second child in the CMU unit. I was slightly horrified when I got into my delivery room by the amount of the previous occupant or occupants blood that there was on the floor. I find this really bad and after the hospital staff walked out I got my dettol wipes out and cleaned it up, (talk about being prepared to clean your hospital room). Looks like we have to these days. I then had a look down the side of the bed that was nearly touching the wall and the amount of dust in balls was horrendous. This room hadnt been cleaned for days. From when I phoned up the hospital it was one hour and a half until I arrived and the midwife said I was wondering where you were, plenty of time to mop the floor.

What could be improved

Get it clean
