This morning I spoke to a patient on Rowan 1 - below are his comments:
Rowan 1 could be better, seeing a doctor on the ward daily would be good. You only see a doctor once a week or once a fortnight, what if you’re up and down in between seeing the doctor; what if you need help then? You should see the doctor everyday for 10 mins because your mood changes.
Every morning there is a meeting with a nurse for ten minutes which is good. Nurses are all good here but they don’t talk about medication, just give it to you.
I’m looking for a place to move to now. My house got trashed a few weeks ago so I need to find a place to live, so I have to bid. Nobody is helping me here with organising the flat so I have to go to Bulwell. I only get thirty minutes off the ward which means it’s difficult to do stuff.
When you’re on the ward you have a lot of time on your hands, everyday becomes the same depressing day because it’s just the same as before. We’ve got the pool table but not much else.
