My friend was admitted to the high dependency unit with severe breathing difficulties. I visited him at around 3pm and there were still dirty lunch plates in the corridor with food leftovers on them, with flies circling the trolleys.
As I sat at his bedside I looked at piles of papers and postit notes on the central desk area and wondered how they could keep it clean. When my eye was drawn to the back of a pillar in the middle of the floor, which still had Christmas cards stuck up on it 3 months after Christmas - so just how often is the high dependency unit cleaned, and if that's a specialist area what's the rest like?
My friend sadly died.
