"B4 should talk to B11 maybe it would raise the standard.- Rotherham District General"

I went into Rotherham General in May 2007 with abdominal pain. I stayed on B4.
The doctors gave me a lot of information but this was one of the only positive things about my treatment.
The nurses were mardy and abrupt. They need better nurses who care. Cleanliness was non-existent. Bathroom was disgusting.
i was extremely embarrassed when a nurse shouted down the ward that my catheter was in. I could have strangled her. I was very angry.
When I got to B4 I got shown the bathroom and the toilet, which were dirty and you had to share them with men. I was disgusted when the nurse told me.
I was unpacking my suitcase to put my things in the bed side table and it was filthy, I had to clean it myself with wipes. I noticed that when other patients left and went home I never saw anyone cleaning the bed side cabinets, they were all dirty.
I had to ask three times for my tablets before I went home as they had forgotten to send the form to the pharmacy. I asked a nurse what was going on and she said they had two wards to run and were very short staffed. I said that's not my fault and I didn't need to know that and decided to get my tablets the next day.
I hope I never go on B4 again. I am going back for an operation next year. I hope I go to B11, the staff and nurses there are brilliant and very friendly. Ward B4 should go to see B11 work and then every ward should do the same.
