Took my nana to ward G5 this morning for her operation, First thing I noticed was the bedding. Somebody else's Blood on her blanket.. A yellow stain on her pillow ( which I have no idea what it was). When I complained to the staff nurse I was told they "didn't make that bed". I really didn't care who made or makes beds, I just wanted a clean blanket and pillow case for me to remake my nana's bed, I wasn't even offered any clean bedding. Staff sat at the nurse desk gossiping about their antics from the weekend. I know they have every right for a life and are probably over excited about the weekend they have. Surely you provide a staffroom for this kind of conversation?! I did take photographs of the unclean bedding. I will be back up for the evening visit & I will be checking if she has clean bedding on. I do fall in the health and social category myself so I do know this is cross contamination & infection control issue. If no improvement I will have absolutely no choice but to take it further. Absolutely vile that basic cleanliness is poor!
