I was on hourly pain relief after an operation.
When I buzzed for pain relief I was ignored and told it was not time and to call when it was 6am. I had stomach surgery and was unable to sit up and see the time. I buzzed before any of the side rooms and yet they were given pain relief before me. Other patient had just come from I. C. U. and was left with her left breast exposed. The noise from the nurses station was like a train station @peek hr.
There was only one outstanding Staff Nurse, nothing was too much and every person felt special and well cared for. I feel the NHS should give her special recognition as an example of 1st class practice. I am an ex nurse myself and Staff nurse showed what nursing should be. Food was very good. Other staff I feel did not interact in any way with her patients.
