"21st Century hospital delivering Victorian care"
About: Royal Bournemouth General Hospital Royal Bournemouth General Hospital Bournemouth BH7 7DW
I was truly shocked at the treatment I recently received at this hospital. Nobody likes to be in hospital but I had a minimum expectation that my care needs would be met with dignity and privacy.
Nurses working on the day shift were rushed off their feet, senior nurses spent more time trying to unblock beds and make decisions about whether wards should be opened or not ,than on nursing patients.
The night shift staff were loud and frankly lazy.
I was told by a day shift member of staff that my cannula needed to be changed and would be carried out when night staff came on. Needless to say the cannula was not changed and that evening my drip was attached to the arm of a TV stand rather than a drip stand. When my drip fell on the floor, it was not replaced or cleaned, simply picked .up and reattached the TV stand.
This is one of numerous complaints I could record. The hospital is a disgrace.
