About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

What I liked

i did not like anything regarding my stay!

What could be improved

The staff's attitudes to patients was shocking to say the least, i was treated like a problem more than anything. I was never introduced to a single staff member, i felt like i was a problem for pressing the buzzer, i was administered drugs incorrectly and as such this caused paralysis for 1 hour with the nurse stating it was 'normal' and walking away. i ,felt apprehensive and was never offered support or a sympathetic ear, most of the time i never knew what was happening or if my concerns and issues were normal. there is no way on this earth i will go back to this hospital for anything else!!!
