"Staff levels are far too low and workers stink of..."
About: Warrington Hospital Warrington Hospital Warrington WA5 1QG
The staff try hard on the whole but wards are badly managed with too many people acting like they are in charge. This place needs some decent ward managers in place. There are also too many patients per nurse and the poor nursing assistants are run off their feet. They should increase these staff numbers and give them a pay rise. The staff are lovely to each patient but to each other I'm not too sure. I think because they have too much to do they are constantly annoyed that they others aren't pulling their weight. Also a lot of the staff stink of smoke on their breath and uniforms. Its awful as a patient restricted to bed with that smell. I think they should not be allowed to smoke in uniform (or on shift really) but as a minimum, they should get changed as a rule. Even food retailers enforce this rule ! Low staff levels are the biggest problem here.
