What I liked
From the moment I was admitted to ward 40 I was treated with respect and dignity by all the nursing staff. They genuinely seemed to like the job they were doing and i think this was reflected in there attitude towards their patients, they were a happy bunch with a good sense of humour . Which is needed when your feeling down in the dumps.!!!!
They explained why and what they were doing. Nothing was any trouble no matter what you asked of them.My consultant came to see me the day of my operation to go over my procedure and to check all was well with me prior to surgery. I then saw an anaesthetist who outlined what would happen when I got to theatre. My after care was excellent and saw my consultant before discharge. I also liked the visiting hours, 2 hours afternoon and evening was enough. When you are recovering you like some quiet time.
What could be improved
Nothing as far as I was concerned
Thought TV was costly I was a patient for 9 days and it cost me £27..50.
