"A few weeks ago my mother-in law ..."

About: Royal Sussex County Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

A few weeks ago my mother-in law had to spend a couple of nights on Chichester Ward ( Barry Wing )

My wife and I were concerned on a few areas which can best be described as I wouldn’t like to treat a dog there.

To be specific we were concerned about the following:

Bed density

Overpowering smell of urine

Lack of clinical management addressing a number of issues.

What could be improved

increase space allocated to beds ie reduce density

increase fresh air and environment

close Barry wing as soon as possible to bring wards up to standard

bring back Matron and apply some common sense to care and environment
