"Visit to Dad"
About: South Tyneside District Hospital South Tyneside District Hospital South Shields NE34 0PL
On my visit I found the staff to be uncommunicative and unfriendly. My father has very little speech following a stroke but the staff seemed to act as though he can't hear or understand too. When I was waiting in x-ray for him the porters came to take away someone else and never spoke to her. They also got 2 patients mixed up because they didn't ask for their names or even speak to them. I felt that the treatment only got better for him when they realised that he has a large vociferous family.
