About: Stafford Hospital Stafford Hospital Stafford ST16 3SA
The delivery ward staff were lovely although I did find there was a lack of communication between the doctors and myself and husband. They had to take a blood sample from my unborn daughter whilst I was in labour. The deluveey room filled with doctors and instruments for the procduee and nothing was explained to me until I was crying and in such a state they realised that maybe it would be a good idea to keep me informed. I found the ward very unorganised and under staffed. I was placed in a room with my new baby with a lady awaiting a csection and another in labour which I found very poor planning. The staff took a long time to come when you buzzed, everything seemed like too much of an effort for them and doses of antibiotics were missedfor me. I only encountered one midwife on the ward tgat was actually helpful on a two night stay. I wasleft of the ward feeling like a prisoner. I have been left with very bad memories of having my daughter and feeling physically scared of stepping foot in the hospital again.
