"Concerns about ward staff"

Visited a patient and friend on the head & neck ward. Disappointed is an understatement. I heard patients complaining about their care, staff seemed run ragged, and one member of staff couldn't get the meds round done without constantly being pulled away from the drugs trolley by other staff. It took 3 hours to give pain relief.
Staff came to remove a cannula with completely overflowing sharps bins which seemed really dangerous!
As a nurse myself, shouldn't the nursing staff deal with one thing at once without being pulled away? And shouldn't the HCAs check the sharps bins daily?
My friend was in 3 days and couldn't get out quick enough!
