"As a relative"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

As a relative, I am extremely dissatisfied with the nursing staff. Any question I asked, and I didn't ask that many, was met defensively by the staff. My husband was given a daily injection, that he had no idea what it was for ( I was there at the time it was administered) and I asked what it was for. It was a huge effort and persistence on my part to get an answer! We are both in our early fifties and my husband was in purely to be given 4 lots of intravenous steroids daily, so we are both intelligent with it people and I would expect to be treated as such. The sister on MAU also wrote a blatant lie in my husband's notes about a request we made which makes us look as if we were being difficult. We shall be asking for that to be removed.
