What I liked
They actually managed to get me an air mattress early in my stay on 29 admins.
One senior nurse spent some time explaining to me what had happened and helped me understand what the doctor had been trying to tell me.
A student nurse was the first person to notice I had sores and start treating them.
What could be improved
I was on Ward 29 and frequently they were very short staffed day and night.
As a disabled person I lost out nearly every day with food choice because those who could walk got first choice. By the time I got my meal it was cooling down and always overcooked.
I was frequently left lying on conti sheets in a damp state when my catheter was blocked.
I could not always understand what the doctor was telling me.
