"Hospital Stay review."

About: Lister Hospital

I came to A&E on Sunday 6th December 2015 and was admitted to 8B North to have an emergency operation which took place on Tuesday 8th.I had a bowel operation and was not discharged until 16th December. During this time I received a lot of medical care most of which was excellent. I would like to thank all the doctors and team for every thing they did for my care. I would also like to mention that 8B North during my stay had some very caring agency staff that provide a very valuable contribution to the nursing team and maybe the hospital should think very seriously about employing them as a permanent part of the team.Thank you all for your great care.On the permanent team on the ward there were a few special staff that also make a great contribution to the well being of their patience and I would like to thank them as well. Things that could be improved are lockers as there were none ( I was bed 2). Night times could be quieter and lights could be turned off earlier.

Response from Lister Hospital

Our surgery team colleagues will enjoy reading your feedback - many thanks for taking the time to let us hear about your recent experience of the care they provided to you last December.

With regard to your comments about agency staff, we would love them to consider joining us but for many this is the lifetsyle they have chosen - but we are always happy to get them to change their mind!
