"Care following a bleed on the brain"
About: Russells Hall Hospital Russells Hall Hospital Dudley DY1 2HQ
I was treated for a stroke and taken to "breakfast club" on my third day after being admitted as an emergency. When I got to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham they said I should have been transferred there straight after my admittance. I had burr hole surgery the same day.There were bank nurses on the ward at Dudley who treated the patients as if they were children. Food was placed in front of patients who were obviously unable to feed themselves. I sent a letter to Russell's Hall executive outlining areas for improvement but never even got an acknowledgement. If my family hadn't insisted on a brain scan I wouldn't be here now.
