What I liked

it is very hard to say what i liked after our family experince of treatment my daughter lost a child 3 years ago she gotpregnant last year had very poor antinatal care at 34 wks she had a scan because she had not felt the baby move the person who did the scan said the baby is dead, then three others came into the room to say the same thing she was left carrying her little girl for a further 4 days then had a tablet told to go home till things started. on the 4th day she was told to go in they would give her more meds to start delivery, she was left in a room from 10am till 11pm given no food hardly any medical care at 5.23 her perfict baby girl was born my daughter was left in a soiled bed . i came at 6am her partner stripped the bed the soiled sheets were still on the floor at the bottom of the bed at 19.30 pm when they left i was with my daughter for 9 hours she saw a nurse once she at no time was medically checked. although she had a very fast pulse and high blood pressure. she still held her baby as they had to wait till a dr came to fill in autopsy papers he came at 19.00pm bering in mind the baby was born at 5.23am. the baby was deterating all througfh the day. no one asked if they needed anything, although they had requested a photo and vicor to bless jorgie. it took well into the after noon after repeated requests. once a nurse came in we told her are concerns but was told the dr was delaid hold onto the baby he will be as soon as possible. my daughter had carried and given birth to her dead child. she is a complete mess no after care no answers. leighton hospital maternity is hell for anyone they have had so many still births and all the stories i have heard and took part in sound the same poor care poor after care. that is cut backs. i my self have an ongoing complaint about poor care on a ward when i was bed bound for 19 days i ended up having a pulmonary embolism and nearly died.

What could be improved

get a proper medically run hospital its all about cutting staff save money the hospital is run by managers who do nothing to help staff manager has under manager if they got rid of some ofd the so call mangeririal staff they could get front line staff patient care would be up. as it is the few staff left are run off there feet and the managers sit up stairs counting the money they have saved for there departments. by cutting staff.
