taken into hos 1st Nov etremally high temp with bladder infection. on 3rd Nov eve the staff on were very unpleasant..From approx 7 pm onwards visitors with patient about 3 beds away seem to have a radio on and were having a sing song. I asked sister if they could quiet them as I felt ill with headache and temperature. I was unkindly told no, as this was a peoples hospital.I tried to state that this was a place for sick people if they wanted a sing song they should leave the hospital. the main lights were hurting my eyes so I asked them if they could be turned off, I was sharply told lights out time is 10pm. the sing song eventually stopped at 8.30pm when the visitors left. by then I was very distressed and wanted to leave the hos but had no transport. I was very upset. loud chatter went on by the staff in question up my end of the ward I feel on principle. eventually at 10pm on lights out they then began to bring round tablets and do blood pressure etc. Finally at 10.45pm silence rained in the ward so we could sleep in peace only all to be woken in morn at 4.30am with lights on at first I had a spell of memory loss, possibly due to the stress of the eve just past. now time for blood pressure again.
