"Unhappy experience at Moseley Hall Hospital"
Posted by Anonymous
This facility is way past it's best wards are small (one ward is closed due to a leaking roof) they are dirty tired and not conclusive to treating patients with dignity and respect. A few of the staff are caring and polite but the majority are under staffed and try to do as little as possible. I witnessed one patient who was wheelchair bound pleading for over 30 minutes for someone to assist him going to the toilet the staffs response was they were short staffed and too busy (2 of them where chatting at the mobile medication dispenser for the whole period). The communal area where patients eat their meals and watched tv was terrible, dirty, broken furniture of poor quality. On one occasion I reached under a bed to pick up a dropped item - it had a soiled garment , one sock and an old news paper underneath it all had a thick layer of dust on them. I feel sorry for those members of staff who care about their patients as their efforts will be impacted by the overall attitude of non caring, just want to get my shift over attitude. But I feel more sorry for the patients who have to suffer this example of everything which is wrong with the NHS
