My papa was in hospital in wishaw general for 2 weeks and within these two weeks his blood was wrongly labelled with another patients name which was sorted by the blood bank.
He was also isolated into his own room due to the nurses assumptions that he had MRSA years ago when he was never treated for it and we were never aware that he had it. Then when he was in ward 4, it was noted on his record that he had a CT scan which AGAIN was wrongly logged on his notes, the nurses were asked about this and their reply was that there was another person withthe same name in this ward.
This seems to be the excuse they've use for everything that has went wrong. This isn't a complaint but it's something that should be taken more carefully.
