I had to be in hospital for my operation at 7am in the morning, but I was just waiting around until 12 midday for the actual operation. Communication could have been better here.
After my op I was placed on the Rowan Ward. It was very busy indeed. The nurses are terrific, seemingly overworked, rushed off their feet and not enough of them, but I can't fault the nurses at all.
The food however was deplorable. I was in hosital on the 20th July 2006 and the weather was very hot, but there is no excuse for bringing out "cold sandwiches" that were hot! I suggest that they use some kind of cooler and ice for your water jug. The ward could also do with air conditioning as the fans weren't very effective.
The cleaners came round every morning with a mop, the floors were clean but there was no dusting on the beds or shelves etc.
The consultant came round and visited twice which I was happy with.
Finally the curtain around my bed wasn't long enough.
Thankyou to all of the staff!
