My mother was admitted over Christmas to ward 1. They were not expecting her, even though it had been arranged. Despite her having Alzheimer's, the nurse wouldn't take any information even though I had to eventually go. Couldn't tell me when the doctor was coming.
I saw nurses putting a bag in ordinary waste with faecal matter clearly showing through from another patient & had heard them talking about cleaning them up.
There was a lead plugged into the wall of the corridor which was a trip hazard.
When she was discharged, had to wait until mid afternoon for the doctor to come & discharge her even though she could have gone first thing in the morning.
I was pretty disgusted with the whole process. As a nurse, I know it should be much better.
