"Good care at Royal Hallamshire but don't like mixed wards"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

I was a patient at the Royal Hallamshire hospital cardiology unit with chest pains. The best thing about how I was treated was the kindness and concern of all the staff.

However, I did not like the mixed ward - it was embarrassing and upsetting. I am a male patient and a female patient was getting in and out of bed and I saw more than I should have. It was embarrassing for me and my wife.

I also found it very upsetting that I had to lie in a bed all night next to a lady who had died. I could not sleep.
