What could be improved
There are lot of well meaning nurses but my experience was one of chaos with lack of continuity of patient care, with little handover between departments and services that left family frustrated in relation to the care that my father should have received. The communication between all the various services that I encountered was appalling and the way that my father was told of his terminal illness was heartless and shouldn’t have been allowed to happen.
The building is new and was clean, however it’s unfortunately not a clean building that my father needed it was medical care and attention and there were shortcomings in providing this.
Not a hospital I nor any of my family would look to return to and we would all opt to go elsewhere should the occasion arise.
