What I liked
The staff were friendly
What could be improved
Following surgery my blood pressure was checked once, I was told to drink as it was very low, I was promised tea twice but it never materialised.
I was told I would be discharged as soon as I had eaten, drunk & gone to the toilet, I was not provided with food or drink.
I was on a ward with 2 extremely noisy "learning difficulties" patients when I called the nurse I asked if I was actually in the original Bedlam ... she was very sympathetic, agreed & asked if I would like to go home?
My blood pressure was never re-checked I couldn't wait to leave & get myself food, drink & some peace to sleep off the genral anaesthetic.
I have experienced similar treatment when visiting hospital with elderly relatives, staff always appear to be busy and spend a lot of time chatting loudly at the nurses station they seem incapable of making sure that patients are looked after in the most basic sense i.e. food, drink & kept clean.
