"1 to 1 nursing, named nurse and ..."

About: Russells Hall Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

1 to 1 nursing, named nurse

and the nursing staff in general

morning doctor rounds, and his report on your progress

adequate bathrooms

day room, books and tv

What could be improved

leason between administration, and medical staff my opperation was cancelled twice, first time no high dependency bed a vailable, sent home, 2nd time i made it to the theatre, and was sedated for the opperation, on recovery was told due to my own safty the opperation was cancelled due to the insertion of air way into my oesophatus.

3rd time my opperation went to plan

Anything else?

i was not partictcatly happy to the way things turned out for me prior to my opperation, but i do realise that bed space is in high demand essecially for emergencies, as for my opperation being cacelled this too was for my own safty, but it certainley sent my nerves ragged waiting.

next is the old story of car parking, it is a sambles and to expesive
