About: West Cumberland Hospital West Cumberland Hospital Whitehaven CA28 8JG
Basic care is expected and not delivered. Cleanliness is totally ignored.My dogs bed is cleaner and more hygienic.I worry constantly that he is defenceless to infection as he is so poorly.The ward is stuffy and smells unclean.The nurses are not able to answer simple questions about treatment as there is never a Doctor available. Visiting times make it impossible to speak to a Doctor as it is evening and weekends. If I want to speak to a Consultant I have to make an appointment with them. My car does not run on fresh air! I was always under the impression a Hospital was "the best place to be" my husband has never been ill and this is the first time he has spent a long period of time in one I sincerely hope he never has to be in one again if these are the standards nowadays.
