About: Royal Albert Edward Infirmary

What I liked

or rather did not ,this hospital is a disgrace. i know they are understaffed, but surely we all deserve the respect and the best of care they are able to give, we are after all human beings.my brother was in there 8 weeks and very very poorly, he comes home for 10 days and ends up back again for a differant complaint but rather than take the time to read his notes, they just read what is wrong with him this time which is a bowel blokage.my brother cannot walk or stand unaided, he has ulcerated legs and heels which he needs to stay off for another 21 days but they decide to put him in a chair despite his protests,he was told to stop being soft by the nurses who attended him, please bear in mind that he has fractured vertebre and was crying with pain but they did not give a damm.my parents turned up to complain the nurses in question vanished.they know who they are, at the very least they should apolagise.i do not dought that this is a rare case but it stinks .what happened to nursing being a vocation.

What could be improved


Anything else?
