"the showers were powerful!"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

the showers were powerful!

What could be improved

Communication between nurses and myself, i was told i was staying in for 24 hours, yet 5 days later i was still there

Anything else?

On my 1st night i was fast asleep and was awoken by a nurse wrapping a pulse monitor on my arm, she didnt even have the decency to wake me up to tell me she was doing it, i was scared witless, then at 4am, i was awoken once again with a pain shooting in my hand, only to find a nurse was putting me on a drip! For Pete's sake I wouldnt mind, but have the decency to wake patients up 1st, i was scared to death.
