"A humiliating experience at Ormskirk"

About: Ormskirk & District General Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I want to raise a concern about the procedure undertaken in theatre before having my hip replacement.

I think it is almost abuse to be catheterised in front of male staff, while even a male member of staff was watching and decided he would inform me that this was the most embarrasing part of the proceedure.

How unprofessional is that for a hospital that claims to protect dignity? I am so disgusted that my hope is I never have to have another operation at Ormskirk Hospital.

Also the nurses seem only to congregate at the nurses station rather than observing patients needs on the ward. What an awfull experience it was.
