I appreciate staff willingness to try to help. However there is very poor nurse patient communication. I was not provided with timescales while waiting for medications and discharge letter, which took around 3.5 hours from doctor saying i could go. I was asked for a water sample that was never collected from me. I was asked if i wanted water which when i said yes, never turned up. One nurse did not know what had happened with the previous nurse and i was asked about 6 different times what intravenus meds i had had during the day.
I appreciate demands of the job, however better communication would have helped the situation.
