What I liked
I thought my stay at the MAU(bay4 bed29) was exceptional. The staff were outstanding and were really caring and considerate to my needs. I was diagnosed and treated within 24 hours. The ward its self was run with professionalism from the auxiliary staff to the nurses to the doctors and consultants. MAU is a strange environment and has a lot of patients with alcohol and drug problems. The staff treated everyone with respect and dignity and nothing was too much trouble. I would like to thank all the staff who helped me especially getting my MRI done earlier than anticipated so I could go home to my family. I was diagnosed with idiocratic intercranium hypertension.
What could be improved
I would have liked the curtain around the beds to be pulled around and night time. It's awkward doing it when the patient next to u is awake. It appears rude if I do it so if the nurses/auxilliaries did it would be more comfortable.
Thank you for helping me and for showing outstanding professionalism in all levels of the hierarchical structure of the hospital. Also the food was really good especially the beef and stout casserole.
