What could be improved
After recovering from an operation my nan in law was being sick. We asked the nursing staff for tissues and were told Sorry we don't supply tissues. So we asked for toilet roll. Again we were told Sorry we don't supply toilet roll. When we asked what we could do, the nurse just shrugged her shoulders.
Also when she was first admitted she was unable to move due to a broken hip. We arrived for visiting and the call button was in its holder on the wall. If it hadn't been for a younger patient in the bed opposite keeping an eye out for her I dread to think how she would have attracted staff attention.
We also observed blood samples left on the nursing station for over an hour. Now when we go to the surgery for blood tests they get sent off quickly and are kept refrigerated. I wonder how reliable the results were after sitting in the ward heat for so long ?
