"Epistaxis: In-Patient Treatment"
About: Queen Alexandra Hospital Queen Alexandra Hospital Portsmouth PO6 3LY
I am grateful for the excellent treatment I received from all the staff on Ward D8, including Doctors, Nurses and support staff. My only reservation is the delay in being transferred to a bed after the doctors treated me. With hindsight I am sure this was because of the time it takes for existing patients to be discharged thereby freeing up a bed. However I wasn't actually told this in as many words, it was a case of "I'll go and find out", but no clear explanation was given. Just a suggestion: any chance of your acquiring a recliner or two? That would be a lot more comfortable than sitting in an ordinary chair for 5 hours plus in the ambulatory room.
