"Unclean hospital facilities"

About: Rotherham Hospital

(as the patient),

I went into Rotherham District General Hospital for the removal of my gall bladder. Whilst there I was on ward B5. The pre-assessment team were fantastic.

My complaint was that the cubicle was very dirty. The fan was filthy. I was brought in a bowl to wash myself and left stranded with no help, no towel, no toiletries were passed to me.

I then had to wait after the operation an unacceptable time for my take home drugs. After waiting three hours I decided to leave.

I would like to thank Aysha/all of the team at pre-assessment unit. Mr Lambertz was fantastic.
