Ward 16B - Washroom and toilet not cleaned from 29July to 2nd August, cleaner wiped toilet seat with dry cloth, then wiped round the sink basin with same cloth, patient cleaned sink herself with antibacterial wipes. After a half hearted attempt to sweep the ward, still managed to leave a sizeable amount of debris under bed. Cleaner then left to repeat the process in the next ward.
On discharge, distance to car park, was more than I could manage after undergoing major surgery the previous day, wheelchair was not offered, until, whilst resting on route, a nurse from another department arranged for wheelchair after seeing discomfort/distress I was in.
