"Not a lot Im afraid, Im deaf and ..."

About: Queen Alexandra Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

Not a lot Im afraid, Im deaf and felt so alone, no communication..

What could be improved

People who are deaf and cant sign language but can finger spell a little, and respect, I even had nurse go to another patient as the nurse ordered my meal, Not me, then when I asked If I could look and tick, the nurse then read it and went to another patient and said 'same as mine' I lip read what the nurse said, I said no it isnt, the other patient just nodded his head in disgust at nurse not me...many things I could say but I will leave it at that for now

Anything else?

Yes Ive just acquired a small disabled electric scooter, only got it tonight, but I hope Im allowed to use it in Queen Alexandra hospital in morning at 8.45am when I go for CT Scan....My wife cant be there so its electric scooter for me...I dont want a scene being Im Deaf, I might get things wrong..I would really like to know If Im allowed to use it, I checked all i can, but havent seen anything saying I cant..
