I was recently unfortunate enough to need to be admitted to ward 15. The department seemed in chaos. Some nurses only interested in getting the job done..not necessarily with care. One nurse pushed an intravenous antibiotic so hard into my vein it collapsed...she turned to me and said..'what shall i do now' this did not fill me with great hope. I was extremely ill and could not help myself...many nurses despite being able to do cannulas did not as it was not their job and this lead to waiting hours for 'hospital aces' being deployed often many hours in between. I would hate to be on this ward again..it felt like chaos
