About: Rochdale Infirmary Rochdale Infirmary Rochdale OL12 0NB
Really upset at the fact that you cannot stay with a relative before their operation and you are sent off at the doors from reception and told you will be telephoned when your relative is ready for collection. A bit like ordering online from argos. What happened to patient care. I was told there was no room for relatives to stay with patients and so they are left alone for up to five hours on a ward , even though there is a chair at the side of the bed! Some operations such as terminations of pregnancy are traumatic enough without the added stress caused by having relatives sent home and patients being left alone. Oldham hospital allowed a relative to stay with the patient before theatre and be there when the patient was returned to the ward. Will not be recommending this hospital!!
