"i decide to go iceskating, big ..."

About: Broomfield Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i decide to go iceskating, big mistake cause i broke my leg in two places or two bones. a clean break.

the fact that the nurses that where in e.r. that i had was a twit. she poked and proded my leg. acting like it was just mild sprained. The doctor poked his head in and said it was broke.

then i finally got in a ward and they could not decide when i was to have my surgery. I was voilent sick cause i had not had much to eat due to nil by mouth. it was not told until it was 6 i was not going in. I am diabetic. so i have to eat at certain times of the day.

The rest of my stay was ok .. a few nice nurses made the stay good. But a few who were rude, just didn't go well with me. I am use to american hospitals and this is my second stay in this one since marry my husband. i am not sure if i would give them two thumbs up .. but it was ok.

What could be improved

communication and nurses being more intune with what is going on.

the food was good.

staff seemed overworked alot of the time. but mostly very friendly.
