" communication skills and mixed sex wards - Doncaster Royal"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

Some of the nurses on the assessment ward were great, whilst other senior nurses were clever and not interested.

In my opinion the communication could have been better, and I felt that the nurse who was in charge when I was there could have communicated much better with me. It would be better if you were treated like a patient.

I was embarrassed about sharing a room with men on the ward, there were 3 old men and only one other woman.

I would like to thank all the staff on the assessment ward who treated me whilst having a CT scan and brain scan, but in my opinion many of the main ward staff who treated me were not good.
