What I liked
Some younger nursing staff ok.
What could be improved
Better comunication between Doctors and Nurses, day staff evening staff.
better comunication between wards other hospitals.
Attentiveness to patients.
temperature on the ward, very chilly.
Training of staff on telephone reception, attitude problems.
My mother an 89year old was admitted, within 2 days her money had been stolen,
all patients were as my mother bed bound. No appology given from senior staff.
Patients are left to stare at the walls ,the nursing station is quite divorced from the wards visually,thus the patients are left for long periods of time without any stimulus.
The ward was very chilly, patients sitting with blankets around their shoulders,all patients elderly.
Mum was discharged at 9-30am she arrived at her nursing home at 2-30pm, having been left to sit in a chair in another ward on her own.She has cancer and a fractured arm
The memeber of staff on telephone reception was rude with a very bad attitude
The lame appology was that an ambulance had broken down.
The last straw was that the hospital had forgotten to send the appropriate medication to the nursing home, having to deliver next day.
