"The nurses did not seem to be ..."
About: Lister Hospital Lister Hospital Stevenage SG1 4AB
The nurses did not seem to be particularly interested in the welfare of the old people on the ward. My grandfather (91) was left sitting on his commode for 15 minutes, until the nurses had finished their gossiping before he could get back into bed. The nurses claimed they were 'handing over' to the new shift, but i don't think talking about their husband's gum problems and what they were doing over Xmas really counts as a useful hand over the the new shift of staff. They were disinterested in the patients, and treated visitors like they were a source of annoyance, rather than a source of comfort to the patients.
