Was admitted on a Sunday and not discharged until a week on the Tuesday (9days). During this time the sister, nurses, care assistants and catering staff were exceptional. However
I was nil by mouth for 5 days, 4 of these days the operation was cancelled in the afternoon. It was very distressing.
I saw doctors etc every day for a fleeting time to explain. I eventually saw my consultant on the Wed who told me op tomorrow, cancelled.
Op on Friday and saw consultant on Sunday who indicated I could go, did get discharged till Tuesday. Not happy. Other patients with similar injuries with different consultants were in and out in 4 days.
they have wifi there are no tv's, radio etc.
Just wifi is no good for older people without these gadgets.
