"Abysmal, disgusting, total lack of common sense..."

About: St Peter's Hospital (Maldon)

What I liked

Nothing. It is an appallingly badly run hospital which has no communication between different staff or services. Getting anything done takes forever, in fact after five weeks the basics such as blood test results and mental health assessments have not been done. I am very dissatisfied indeed and now my gran has lost 3stone, is bedridden because they dont have time to help her stay mobile and she has sickness and diarrhea and it getting weaker every day. Five weeks ago when she was admitted she was healthy and active. This hospital is slowly killing her yet because they havent done basic tests after five weeks they wont discharge her. Absolutely appalling.

What could be improved

Everything. It is a dire place to be.
