The nursing care was ok. It could of been better, but the staff are under so much pressure due to a lack of qualified staff.
On one ward the main nurse appeared to do nothing to help patients. When asked for something she would put the work onto other staff. For exp. one patient had a drip alarm sounding. She walked passed it loads of times, I felt it was getting on her nerves. But would she turn it off. No. But she told another member of staff to do it.
That poor girl was working so hard. But when it went off again the nurse went to find the girl to get her to turn it off. It would of been quicker to do it herself. The male nurse was fantastic. He always had time for his patients.
On short stay cardiac ward they were good. Only problem was 24 patients and only 2 qualified nurses. Meaning each one had to care for 12 patients. This is not good for the nurses. I don't mind who reads this.
