I had a 6 day stay on ward 4a yorkhill hospital with my child. I feel that I have to comment about the parents toilets - I had to leave my sick child go off ward to use the one toilet which was shared by two wards and by both sexes. The seat was broken, as was the sanitary box. I then had to buzz to get back into the ward to get back in. I was therefore reluctant to go especially at night.
Surely a toilet should be on the ward for parent staying with their small child.
I now have UTI as I didn't want to drink much and use this toilet.
The shower rooms for parents were on different floors were filthy. Mould covered tiles and blood on soap dispenser, also abandon soaking towels. What a bacteria breeding ground.
