What could be improved
Unknown to me...the visitng time had changed on the ward where my husband was since his last admission.When I turned up at 4pm today(bank holiday Monday) I was told I could only have 5 minutes with him.As my son was picking me up after his shift ended at 6pm that meant I had to hang round for 2 hours until visiting times resumed so I could be with my husband.
I had no choice but to go and sit in the restaurant only to find that it had closed at 1.30pm and was not due to reopen until 11pm tonight.
So I had a choice of sitting in a corridor for 2 hours or pay £10 taxi fare home.I chose the latter.So I have been deprived of seeing my husband just because of one 'jobsworthy' nurse whom I had explained my circumstances to.
Thought 'nurses' were caring people?.
