Nursing staff were fantastic, hospital was spotless, but the lack of information other than 'she's doing well' is totally inadequate and the chance of speaking to a doctor well, as i said in the title, you have more chance of seeing the Loch Ness Monster than seeing a doctor to speak to.
I understand staff shortages and all that but the nurse cannot give you a detailed diagnosis or treatment needed, more attention is needed to keeping the relatives informed. Got fed up of asking to speak to a doctor only to be told there's not one here to speak to you at the moment.
I warned about not going into hospital over a weekend and it was good advice.
No point in making a formal complaint because the problem of a shortage of doctors at the weekend is well known.
