"poor care after operation"

I underwent an operation 3 years ago and stayed in Rotherham General Hospital. Things may have changed now, but my experiences were not entirely good!
1) I was provided with a food tray, but it was left on the sideboard where I could not reach it: I was unable to get out of bed due to surgery. One of the patients took pity on me and passed my tray. I think it is important to ensure patients receive nourishment - it should be part of treating the whole patient and the process ('end to end' so to speak).
2) I was also talked over by attendants who gave me a bed bath, and I felt invisible - a thing rather than a person.
3) I had a lot of discomfort in my left hand around the tube inserted to take medicine. I asked for its removal as it was not required and it was 10 hours later when it was removed. I was bruised and it hurt a lot.
