"THe screaming banshee, 1 ward ..."
About: Royal Berkshire Hospital Royal Berkshire Hospital Reading RG1 5AN
What I liked
THe screaming banshee, 1 ward down the corridor - all night. THe lack of recognition that I had a head injury and could not feed myself (lost over a stone in 4 weeks - despite what was logged in the wrong hospital records). Simple things either not done or done badly - appalling.
What could be improved
Close, supervision and control of staff and clear briefing of each shift on the specifics of each patient - ignorance of circumstances and conditions defied any credible explanation.
The suggestion that nursing is a vocation has nearly lost any relevance.
