"Doctors never communicate with each other"
About: St James's University Hospital St James's University Hospital Leeds LS9 7TF
Although nursing staff are caring and friendly, they can often be unaware of what procedure has just happened to patients. Consultants never read notes on the patient about previous problems. This leads to many differing opinions and lack of decisive action. Never the same consultant for out patients appointments either. Twice been offered pain killers but reacted to them in the past - the notes say that. wards are far too noisy for restful sleep. Staff respond to nurse button being pressed, but anything else, such as telling them your morphine drip has run out, gets no action for hours. Food ok and varied. Visiting hours sensible but it would be nice to have family member their when surgeon talks to you after op as you are so full of drugs you neither remember nor understand anything.
