"No leadership"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Anything else?

I found a lack of leadership on the ward.You never knew who was in charge and all staff were very chummy. There was one nurse to 10 patients. I felt I had to be with my husband all day to ensure that he got a drink and something to eat. on one occasion I had to prevent a nurse giving my husband the wrong medication . I was glad to get my husband home where he was treated with care and compassion by the local hospice staff instead of a project by the doctors
