What I liked
Two of the healthcare assistants were lovely, a credit to the hospital really.
What could be improved
The floors were extremely dirty, blood was on the bathroom floor for at least 6 hours on the day I was discharged - it was still there when I left at tea time. The floor around my bed was dirty - it looked like tea or coffee. I waited up to 2 hours for pain relief when I asked for it. I was not sent home with enough medication to complete the prescribed course.
I was asked what I would like for lunch & dinner 3 days in a row. There was only actually a meal for me on one occasion. The rest of the time I was given soup or a sandwich - hardly sufficient.
