What I liked
No visitors at meal times, and meals looked good and plenty to choose from. The domestic staff were very friendly and always helpfull.
What could be improved
Most of the nursing staffs attitude.
I was put on the wrong ward due to the correct ward being busy, however i sure was made to feel that i didnt belong as soon as i asked for pain relief, alot of the nursing staff were very unplesant and every thing took ages as they would go on other missions and i was left waiting and waiting, even through the night but plenty chit chat went on at the desk! I also overherd a nurse speaking to a 84 yr old very nice lady as she couldnt get herself up for the loo in the night, she and me both ended up in tears at the way she spoke and totally upset her, if i could have got up and helped her i would have! I sure feel that the caring has gone right out of nursing and its now just a job and god help people in their care.
