About: Horton General Hospital

Anything else?

Disgusted with the day care team at the maternity unit . Went to visit my sister she gave birth to her first child having no experience in breastfeeding the day staff did not help her at all! I witnesses the staff being blunt and didn't seem to give any interest in any off my sisters concerns and issues she was just brushed off ... staff were too keen to get back to they chat In they little staff room . In the hour I was there not once did any staff member come round to ask how she was doing and if she needed any help knowing she had a traumatic labour! I've never felt so disgusted! Its not like they were busy the ward my sister was in it was empty it was just her in there and the next ward only had 1 lady , so they weren't rushed of the feet with to patients!
