"Itu ward"

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

Hi I have been in hospital 4 times this year, an stayed for 2 weeks plus every time. Out of all the times there has been only one complete, I was rushed in after chemo an the room I was put in had blood on the floor an cotton wool with blood on them, not my blood, then the toilet had someone else's samples still in the bed pan still in there too, also the itu ward went out of there way to do everything plus more, I would like to say they gave me 110% an my daughter is a nurse in a different hospital so I know they have 110%, all in all a job well done

Response from University Hospital Of North Tees

Thank you for your comments. We are very sorry to hear about the state of the toilet. Clearly this is not acceptable and not the standard of hygiene we would normally expect. However we are pleased to hear that the experience in ITU was as good as it could have been. We do appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment because we can pass comments onto our staff, appreciate the very good work they do and learn lessons to help future patients.
