This review may be a little premature as my husband is still being cared for at the hospital. To date is care has been excellent, in Ward 7, CCU and cardiac care. The staff have all been supportive and all first class in their roles. One little comment. Staff should really leave the ward at night for their break and a chat - sleep is difficult enough in a busy ward! My main complaint/concern is about entering the hospital via the main entrance. It is often like a battle scene. Patients wearing gowns and hooked up to various equipment sit or stand a few feet away from the doors having a cigarette break. The fug of smoke is horrible and the ground is littered with cigarette ends. Why is this allowed? Are these people suppose to be ill? If there has to be a smokers area surely it can be moved from the main entrance. It gives a very poor impression of the hospital and I think it is disgraceful.
