"Good care but more nursing staff needed at Newark hospital"

About: Newark Hospital / Cardiology

(as the patient),

In November of last year, I was admitted to the Newark hospital after suffering heart failure. I found the standard of care to be good - I was treated as an individual, and not as just a 'case'. I do feel that some improvements could be made though - I would like to have had better knowledge of when the consultants would be visiting me (i.e. given appointment times). Also, the nurses were clearly under a lot of pressure as a result of being short in numbers, so something could be done about this.
