"My fathers hospital stay"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

I am sorry to say that although my fathers broken bone was fixed i was appauled at the lack of communication from nursing staff to patients and family members and the lack of clarity in nursing handovers. I observed a lack of respect from some of the nurses towards eldery patients and although this was reported to the sister on the ward other visitors were voicing their concerns around this theme days after my concerns were highlighted..

We are also sorry that despite your concerns being reported to sister, you considered that these had not been acted upon.
