About: Barnsley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

felt like i was treted very duisrespectfull, in regards to as i was there for a week made it worse that there was no empathy or time given to assist with other emotional aspects, waited 45 mins for pain medications and was made to feel like i was a burden, not a good experiance and if it had not of been for one nurse giving me 5 minutes of their time i think i would have been more depressed on leaving. I was told despite doing my own pregnancy testing that i wasnt pregnant, when i knew i was and almost discharged having an extremelly painful and scary miscarriageThe other nurses had no bed side manner and the dr's couldnt decide between them on a care stratergy.

What could be improved

training in regards to nurse/ patient care

more staff

councilling on wards shoud the nurses be too busy.
