"My mother Ellen"
About: Russells Hall Hospital Russells Hall Hospital Dudley DY1 2HQ
Far too much time spent by nurses filling in forms and not enough time spent on nursing care or with patients.This is of no use if the information filled in on the forms is incorrect. My mother was classified as independent when she had just come on the ward from the high dependency unit and was definitely not independent. She got very distressed when no one would help her to get washed and dressed. In fact my sister and I did it ourselves when we arrived on the ward. Communication was poor regarding my mothers condition and progress. However the occupational staff were very good.
