"My experiences of Rotherham General Hospital"

My daughter was recently admitted to this hospital. Because I live some distance away I often had to phone for information as I couldn't visit every day. The staff seemed always very vague about which ward she was on and sometimes didn't know if she was there at all!
When we visited we found the visiting hours inconvenient for long-distance travellers. Signage in the Car park was not very good. Inside the building there were notices about hand hygiene but from what I saw, the staff generally ignored them and I saw many making private calls on their mobiles (which presumably had not been disinfected?) My daughter was prepared for surgery but sent home late afternoon because they said they had run out of time. She had to wait another week.
From my experience, the hospital seemed to be disorganised at best, shambolic at worst.
I hope I don't have to be admitted to Rotherham General.
