"very quick for booking my x ray ..."

About: North Middlesex Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

very quick for booking my x ray and cat scan, seen quickly through walk in center then a&e diagnosed with my ilnesses very quickly.

What could be improved

everything else!!!!!

Anything else?

i stayed at the hospital for 3 days and was moved twice.The nursing staff lost my notes and them asked me where they were, therfore i was not given my drip that was needed.It worked out that i was allergic to this drip yet it took them 3 times to realise this, even through bruising and swelling.i didnt enjoy eating my meal (which was rank!) whilst watching the patient opposite me have her urine bag emptied into a water jug with no lid and was walked across the ward full to the rim.the patient next to me had a poo on a comode which then sat next to me without the lid on.the nurses do not care about the elderly at all they ignore requests and are not interested if patients are comfortable.the doctors are extremely helpful but the nursing staff well a 5 year old could do the job better.Patients in tears and the nursing staff just walk past.no wonder nobody eats!The food was terrible.I am only 19 and was extremely ill and was put on a ward with the over 60's.I had no privacy.On my 2nd day i was not even offered soap and a towel to wash with!i wa so glad for my discharge!
