"Opal Ward Is a Joke"
Posted by Paige21
The staff at this facilty were very unproffessional in sense that they had no sympathy or genuine intrest in the patients or the family visiting. They had no general knoweldge of the disease that my mother had and the requirements she needed. Its was easy to see that they had no empathy for the people they were caring and they are just sticking the patients in there rooms to become bored and frustrated.
From what i could see its very empty and plain with no activities or things to do.
Whilst visitng I had asked several times for them give me some sort of update on how she has been doing or for information and important numbers so i can keep in contact with what exactly is going on.
It's obvious the carers have no idea and they were all in the office chatting and talking whilst patients were on there own in the corridors and we could see them ignoring us through the glass windows in the office, they were treating it like a social get together rather than a serious place that deals with very unwell people.
Overall this is a horrible place to be and i'm extremely angry. I would like to take my mother out of here asap but they failed to give me any appropriate number or infomation for me to conact.
Things need to be Changed !
