About: Southmead Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

what i liked was the effort the nurses put into making us feel that our ordeal was not as bad as we were feeling it was.

What could be improved

the number one thing that needs attention is the cleaning of the ward in my six day stay the floor was only swept and washed once.Visitors commented on this every day. i was there for a prostate removal opperation. after being discharged i left with a infection of my wound which took two weeks from distric nurses to get under control.

Anything else?

in this ward nurses and staff worked very hard and lots of times never had time to complete their tasks. I think the problem may be lack of staff or finances. I would not be keen to have to spend time at this hospital again.
