"the dept had been decorated well ..."

About: Derriford Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

the dept had been decorated well and eveywhere looked clean an bright and new=the paramedics had been brilliant too

What could be improved

i was just left in my cubicle for several hours where i was just left-i had a nursing assessment and had to wait several hours for the follow up doctors visit -i then had an x-ray i dont know why or what the results were-i had no discharge letter=i was sick on the floor in 3 areas as nobody was with me or had given me sick bowls and when i a staff member ran out to the car park to ask if i wanted to stay as i was being so violently sick still!

Anything else?

my father had recieved a very high standard of care in only recent months to me-by military health staff-in the same department-but i would be aprehensive if any family member was taken in by amulance again if the care could vary so much
