"Nurses that don't care"
About: Darent Valley Hospital Darent Valley Hospital Dartford DA2 8DA
My brother was admitted to darenth valley hospital and has been in a number of wards. When brought in by ambulance he was seen quickly, however the nurses in the A & E resus unit on Saturday night were more interested in chatting amongst themselves and discussing their break times and when changing his oxygen didn't even speak to him to say what she was doing. In fact treating him like an object and not a person.. Then when he was taken for an x ray he was left totally alone in the corridor outside the x ray dept. he was feeling sick and had I not gone to look for him and quickly give him a plastic bag would have vomited over himself. I will say the treatment by the doctors there was good. Again , in cdu, the nurses showed just how uncaring they are. Ignoring him when he was in pain and having trouble breathing, and not even assisting him to wash, he was still in the same gown on Sunday evening that he had been admitted in.. I will give credit where it is due and say that the treatment he received when he was in Rowan ward in November was very good , the nurses there were very attentive and caring. If only all nurses were like those.
