What I liked
I recently accompanied a relative having surgery at Rotherham hospital. Clinical care was also perfectly acceptable, with no problems at all. The standards of hygiene in waiting and treatment areas were good.
What could be improved
I feel that I must comment on the state of the toilets in the main reception. On several occasions (over a period of two months) hygiene was unacceptably poor for a hospital environment, the floor was covered in urine, walls were dirty and the washbasins had obviously not been thoroughly cleaned for some time. In addition to this the blue lighting employed in this area made it very difficult for an elderly relative to safely use the facilities.
A good hospital let down by a lax attitude to cleanliness in these areas.
