I recently wrote a story about my care within the dialysis unit at monklands hospital. which I may say has been satisfactory however, I would like to raise a couple of issues which I feel need addresses.
1 patient transport which at the moment is being assessed is extremely poor with some patients waiting 30 mins +after treatment to be taken home followed by a journey time in excess of a further 30mins. some in ambulance cars and others on there own into a taxi, something not right here.
2 the provision of refreshments to dialysis patients is frankly a disgrace in comparison to some other hospitals, a patient refreshment consists of tea/coffee and a miserable choice of badly made sandwiches however if you are in luck you may get a roll, the contents of the sandwiches/rolls is the same day in day out cheese, egg, corn beef or maybe just maybe you will get a salad mayo roll but dont hold your breath I feel it is time the person or persons responsible be taken to task for these cost cutting tactics and their lack of care for patients.
