"spinal ward m2"

About: Salford Royal

Medical care good. Nursing care poor. Appeared well staffed but seemed to be a case of if your not going to do it then neither am I. Returning from theatre bed still had sheets on it from 2 days previous. Despite repeated requests to remove two drip needles they were not done and I actually removed them myself and no one questioned who had removed them . They were removed on seperate days. Patients were treated as a hindrance particularly by one ward sister. Not a good quality for other staff to follow. On discharge told pain relief prescribed would take 3hours to come to the ward so don't bother with it.
