I spent some time on Brodie Ward. Never had any one to one talks with any of the nurses. No one seemed to care or ask how you were. Staff indifference. No activities.
Even the student nurses didn't seem to bother or seem to care which I found sad.
When I was feeling agitated and paranoid I was just given medication rather than staff wanting to talk about it. No exploration or encouragement.
Not what I consider to be a therapeutic environment.
Only saw nurses at medication times, meal times or if they were doing the ward checks. A lot of bank staff doing obs.
Nurses mainly congregating in staff office mainly - surely they can't be doing paperwork the whole of their shift? Scared to ask for help or for anything.
