"ward 33 never again would i go on this ward"
About: Darlington Memorial Hospital Darlington Memorial Hospital Darlington DL3 6HX
I was on ward 33 this week the staff were the dreadful the nurse in charge was very rude I was in a lot of pain the nurse did not give me pain relief someone came to take blood pressure and put the cuff on the bottom of my arm near my wrist ??? I told the nurse this was wrong the nurse said they could not be bothered to go and get a large cuff ?? the blood pressure they wrote down was not the same as the reading I have worked at hospitals all my working days and found there attitude a disgrace it took the staff 1 hour to get me a glass of water i asked for a bed pan as i am totally disabled the nurse said i could walk to toilet ??? this was in front of visiting relatives i really think something should be done about the staff on this ward i will be send a letter to complain about my treatment this ward was being ran by nurses who do not care why employ staff that can not understand what i was saying ?? they were all stood talking to each other when the job is caring for patients if i was ill again there is no way i would want to be put on this ward
