We are posting this story on behalf of a gentleman who approached a member of Healthwatch Tameside staff.
He was admitted to Tameside Hospital for a hip replacement. He was very pleased with his treatment, saying everything was great, the food the staff and the care he received. The only thing he felt could have been improved was the number of staff on the ward, He felt each nurse had too many patients to look after.
On one occasion he had to remain on a bed pan for half an hour, which was rubbing on his stitches, whilst he waited for the nurse who had explained that she would get back to him as soon as she could.
