"I was admitted with severe injuries ..."

About: Conquest Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was admitted with severe injuries from a car crash. The emergency treatment and subsequent care saved my life. I was in intensive care and high dependency for about 10 days where the standard of care and cleanliness was first class. subsequently I was transferred to a general ward, where the age of the patients and work load put on to the nursing staff was at times burdensome.

What could be improved

Additional nursing staff to assist the geriatric patients even though I was not in a geriatric ward.
