"Mostly good care on ward 63"

About: Southern General Hospital / Neurosurgery

(as the patient),

I had neurosurgery at Southern General Hospital and the doctors were wonderful and 98% of the nurses brill.

However there was 1 in particular who left me without pain relief and contorted, I ended up spending about 3 days in tears. I didn't know who this nurse was until another patient told me who it was.

It's a pity because it leaves patients with such a bitter taste and tarnishes the good name of the other really kind considerate nurses.
