"It's that bad its ....Unbelieveable!...."

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

What I liked

Husband is currently in this hospital and the time and manner in which they treat patients is disgusting and after 9 days in hospital you would think they could actually manage to sort a day out for sugery rather than say "Sunday, Wednesday,Week On Wednesday, Wed,Thurs Or Friday" And then change it to Thursday but at different hospital (Scunthorpe) .

My husband is in a considerable amount of pain and needs surgery, but yet all they keep doing is messing about with slots and masking it with drugs in the mean-time. I mean c'mon you wouldnt leave an animal as long as this , You would either treat it promptly or put it down.

And if i was on my death bed, I would rather die a slow and painful death than have to be in that Hell-Hole!.

What could be improved

Everything!.... Level of Care, Nurses failed to give meds before change-over , Husband wasnt given anti-clotting injection one night

Husband having to sleep in ward with patients just come from theatre keeping him awake all night with being sick, machines beeping etc.

You would think post-op patients would be placed in own cubicles!
