I visited a friend yesterday who has had a stroke and is a patient in the hospital.
Certainly on a Sunday it is such a depressing place. No one on reception to ask where to go.
Many people looked like they had been wheeled into the Wolfson centre, dumped in front of the TV and left.
No interaction, like a bad old peoples home.
And the look she received from a nurse when she asked to go to the loo!
After visiting the ward went to take my friend in her wheel chair out for fresh air, had trouble getting off ward as the door didn't open when I pressed the buzzer, but the nurse just sat and watched me struggle to open the door, move the wheel chair and fix the foot rest that had not been locked in place.
This can not help in their recovery!
