"Rotherham District General - doing it's be but not enough support"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Respiratory medicine

(as the patient),

I have been in hospital a few times and I have found it to be a good one. Like everything else it has changed through lack of money and staff problems. Patients complain about waiting for tablets which was unnecessary. The hospital staff are doing their best, my own doctors are very good and work with you since I have been at home. Things could be improved if people would listen to the patient and not treat us like idiots.

The first three days after being admitted to Ward A for breathing problems I was given a drug that did not suit me. Then I had to discharge myself because my home was burgled, four days later I was admitted again to the same ward and went through a lot of tests to find the cause. I was upset and angry about the trauma of the burglary and was living by myself and I was offered no help like my previous stays in hospital.

I would like to thank the day and afternoon staff, they were good but the night staff were not so helpful.
