What could be improved
My sister has just found out she has cancer at 41and was admitted to this hospital last week. Most the staff and Doctors have been great, but there has been one occasion when I was there a nurse could not get the drip tube into her arm so called another nurse. That nurse was busy which is fare enough, but she shouted across I cannot do 10 things at once you know which maded my sister very upset. Another time when my sister came round from her back op she asked for a glass of water and the nurse said "I only have one set of legs you know!". This made my sister cry, its her first time in hopspital and this coupled with just finding out you have c is not what you want to be hearing. I know the staff are pushed, but their concerns should not be pushed on to making the patients feel guilty about it.
Also most of her meals on the new ward have been cold and I am now having to take her fruit in to eat. Do not let the nurses pass their frustrations on to the patients, they can cope with waiting for what ever it is they have asked for most of the time, but not be made to feel guilty for asking in the first place.
my sister currently in ward 17 Bomoral
There is often only one pay station working after visiting hours at 8pm, this causes a long que around the car park,,it is just a matter of time before one of these people gets hit by a leaving car. I have personally seen a couple of people come very close already.
Finishing times should be staggered or you need more nachines or at least have someone there to collect money when one is down.
