"nothing apart from 1 midwife out ..."

About: Basildon University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked nothing apart from 1 midwife out of about 5 What could be improved? my sister had a baby at basildon. the midwife broke her waters and let her walk from one side of the ward to the other with blood dripping down her legs all over the floors infront of vistors. then left her to get on with it and didnt get a visit in 6 hours. she then got taken to theatre to be cut. she then started fitting and was left and kept getting shouted out for not keeping still. her after car was appalling, she had a epidurle so couldnt move, she had drips out of both hand and was left to deal with the baby even though she kept buzzing. after seeing her go throuth all that at the age of 17 when i had my baby i went to darent valley hospital in kent. it was like the care that the royal family would receive Anything else? also the a&e dept is filthy. a man come in with a gash in his head and the blood was on the floor for the whole 3 hours i was in there n wen i left it was still there. i wouldnt even want my dead body taken there
