"Resent stay in KGH"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I had 2 resent stays in KGH. Firstly the A&E very well organised and the staff really good, second port of call MAU not a good place to be, not as clean as the rest of the hospital, dark and dismal staff rushed of their feet and a doctor that told me i should have a man at home( I was widowed 5 years ago so didn't like that remark).Next I went to Harrowden A, I was impressed it was clean,the staff were fantastic but to few of them. Both times i was in hospital i was in Harrowden A and other than been sent home to early on my first visit still with an infection, which meant going back in a week later,I could not fault that ward. To many bank staff though they didn't seem to care as much as the regular staff. My last night was spent in Cranford ward, what a hard job those nurses have dealing with dementia patients, being bitten and kicked etc and so short staffed and still smiling. I also must comment on the hospital food it was fantastic beautifully cooked and hot.
