About: Good Hope Hospital

The most dire hospital visit ever.Care doled out by mostly student nurses with little supervision.Senior nursing staff unhelpful and feed you any old flannel to shut you up.Was told I would probably have an operation(didn't happen in the end)but I wasn't consulted about this,first I knew of it was when the sign went over my bed "nil by mouth"and I asked why that was.Extremely disappointed after previous stay in cardiology which was very good.
