After having a hysterectomy operation i found myself on ward b11, the registrar told me about my surgery.
as it got closer to teatime i was asked if i would like a drink, but i told the lady that she would have to ask a nurse as i had already asked if i could have something about 12ish and was told i would have to wait till later.
I don't know how busy they had been but when my dad fetched me my bag up at in the late afternoon at visiting time i still had not been washed and i still had my hospital gown on.
I was told that after my op i would get washed by the nurses and i expected to have a sanitary pad on as i was told this surgary can make you bleed. it wasn't until the next day that i got washed when someone put some washing stuff in a bowl of water for me and passed me my hand towel.
After breakfast the doctor came to see me and i had managed to get myself out of bed and into the chair, i was told that i could have my drip , canular and cathetar removed, so by the afternoon i had all removed and got in the shower.
My bedding had blood on it and luckily they had changed it before i got back in.
On the whole the nurses were lovely both day and night. I thought the drinks ladies, doctors and helpers were nice and polite.
But the fan next to me was covered in dust, but that is just a small thing considering that all the ward, toilets, bathrooms and showers were very clean.
The food provided was ok, but i can't understand why at breakfast you get a soft breadcake [which i enjoyed] with butter and marmalade with no means of slicing it in half because the knife you get is only any good for spreading with.
