(as the patient),

What I liked

I have no positive feedback about my experience on ward 27

What could be improved

Everything needs improving from care,respect for patients and the doctors and nurses attitudes. Never have I been treated so poorly .

I was asked to supply a urine sample and was given a dish. I tried to give this to several nurses as it was left on the table at my bed, but after 45 minutes it was still left on view, I found this embarrasing as it was visiting time.

Anything else?

The whole experience of this hospital was a shambles. I saw patients in extreme pain continually have to ask for pain relief . One patient had unexpected problems breathing but there didnt seem any urgency by the staff to help.After 4 hours without being seen by a doctor we decided to leave and to refer back to our doctor. I fear for anyones safety who is admitted to this hospital
