About: Darlington Memorial Hospital Darlington Memorial Hospital Darlington DL3 6HX
My mother was admitted to ward 43 on various occasions and on first arriving was greeted by a student nurse who was absolutely amazing.
On admitting my mother they involved her and myself in all aspects of the admission and did not speak about her but actually spoke to her (many others fail to do this). When visiting my mother she would tell me how the student nurse had been to see her to make sure she was ok and they would come to make sure I was aware of what was happening and if not would go and ask and get back to me.
Although most of the staff were lovely I think a few of the healthcare staff could be a bit better with their interpersonal skills as some were quite scathing towards patients especially the elderly ones!
