"I found the doctors very good ..."

About: The Princess Royal Hospital (Telford)

(as the patient),

What I liked

I found the doctors very good but the treatment they recommended was not always implemented by the nursing staff.

I was not given medication even though nursing staff had signed to say I had received it

.Difficult to speak to nursing staff...would walk past and ignore you.Would leave my drip in for hours when not required.

Would attend to my drip,spectic wound coming straight from another patient withput first using handwash.

Staff were very stressed which was passed onto patients

What could be improved

Nursing staff.....their committment and care.

Better supervision and support by management.
