"would not recommend the vic. If you are..."

About: Blackpool Victoria Hospital

What I liked

would not recommend the vic. If you are having a baby and being induced on ward B don't stay at home. They are short staffed but the staff that are there are rude. They give me the wrong name tag didnt ask me anything when they put it on. i had to go and tell them and they were not bothered no sorry they just cut it off and i was lefted with out one for a while. i asked to be seen as i was in pain they told me we are short staffed put in a complaint. they came an hour later said i was fine. half hour later i said hes come and pressed the button in the toilet. there was blood everywhere the nurse said it was my show more like a blood bath. when i got down to delivery i didnt have time for anything not even gas the baby head was nearly out. My partner only just made it as they wouldn't let me phone him. good job we only live around the corner or he would of missed hes first born. it was very fast delivery. home birth next may be. must say the nurse i saw in delivery was nice all of 20 minutes i saw her.

What could be improved

more staff better attitude to work. believe women when they say the baby is coming . we know are own body.
