What I liked
The cleaning staff were friendly and profesional. they took there job seriously and took not of rules governing each room
The nurses took no notice of rules governing rooms. Whilst in isolation a work experiance lad had to explain to me why he was wearing protective clothing. I asked why the nurses weren't and he said they should. If the nurses were around when i had visitors they would just let them come and go with protective clothing.
The spent more time on paperwork than helping patients. Some nurses were down right rude. Some nurses just didn't care.
The small minority of nurses who cared about there job and cared about there patients are clearly weighed down with carrying the workload of lazy uninterested colleagues.
My treatment at times was shocking.
I had a suspected heart attack whilst in isolation and was left for 3 hours while a nurse went to get a machine - she forgot me. My mother found me on the floor of my room when she came for visiting hours.
