"I liked having a room to myself."

About: Dorset County Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I liked having a room to myself.

What could be improved

I had a c section which went very well but the care afterwards was awful.

I was left for hours to cope with my son not easy when you've just had an operation. Several times i could not reach the bell or pick up my son to feed. Also i was made to ask many times to get pain relief and made to wait hours after i first asked, Also i never got to eat during my 6 day stay when food came my son needed feeding and by the time i finished my food was cold so i told my husband to eat it while i ate rubbish like crisps, staff where very busy and some even rude. A very bad experience i won't be repeating. I am expecting again and will be taking my own pain killers with me and food.
