"Physiotherapists - fantastic - ..."

About: Hull Royal Infirmary

(as the patient),

What I liked

Physiotherapists - fantastic - daily visits and ongoing therapy.


Clean room

What could be improved

Nursing care - basic ( bowel/ bladder/ pressure/ wound care) and understanding of the need for pain relief following major surgery and removal of epidural.

Nursing compassion and empathy.

Anything else?

The nurses on the ward were far too busy - research shows that busy nurses lose their compassion - I had only just read this fact, when this very situation occured with my husband following an accident.

Snappy impatient and flustered nurses do not help the anxious patient who is in pain.
