"Forrest ward"

About: Torbay Hospital

I stayed at Forrest ward for a few days the staff where fantastic and always had your interest at heart. Although one nurse I found very rude did not listen to what you needed to ask, walked away mid conversation and just overall very rude made me cry. Hospital is a horrible place to be in all the other nurses made me feel really comfortable and welcome, however due to that one member or staff who really upset me I would not recommend this ward to anybody due to her. She left me in pain and feeling awful.
