Stayed on the Acute medical ward,for only 48 hours,thank goodness.when I arrived to be admitted left waiting on a chair for almost 2 hours,suffering from pneumonia. Got a bed, after seeing consultant,then taken to the ward,told it was quieter and I should sleep.i was left next to a room with all the lights on,it was midnight,I asked a nurse to pull the curtains as the light was on next to me. All night staff were chatting loudly,sounded like they were having a party!
One poor patient couldn't make themselves heard,calling every few minutes for a nurse...they were all at the nurses station down the corridor.
In the morning,woken by a bright light switched on by my beds to to obs then they walked away leaving it on, my intravenous tube kept kinking sending the alarm off all night, nurses took forever to come. Knew two patients medical history as staff talking so loud, even amongst each other standing away from the patients near to myself... One hca was even laughing as they forgot a patients coffee,it took 2 hours,they were joking about it amongst themselves.it was so unprofessional, and the fact that they were discussing patients confidential information by my bed was disgusting. I couldn't wait to get out of there....I decided to write this as I've just met a friend of mine who has also been on the same ward,they told me how awful it was....I'm not impressed that these so called professionals were so disrespectful...
