Posted by nurse1 (as ),
I had a planned c-section at blackpool victoria, and as I work within the hospital I had certain expectations. MOST of the staff were very friendly and helpful (unaware that I worked there). There were a couple of healthcare assistants whose attitudes left a lot to be desired. They were rude, loud and seemed more interested in themselves then the patients around them.
However, the theatre staff were very friendly and were exceptional with my husband. Once back on the ward, I suffered an allergic reaction and although the staff on those 4 days had never dealt with my concern before they were understanding..... could of done with the oromorph a little sooner than 1hour after crying for it!
But I must say all the midwives that looked after myself were very respectful and caring, they even watched my little man so I could get a few hours sleep!
Very happy with my stay and it was clean and tidy at all times!
