"Poor nursing care"
About: Northampton General Hospital (Acute) Northampton General Hospital (Acute) Northampton NN1 5BD
I spent several days in NGH with a fractured femur and during that short time was moved to three wards. In the first two I was provided with prescribed medication at appropriate times by the nursing staff. They gave the impression that represented the sum total of what nursing involved. I was not offered any toilet facilities until I eventually requested a bowl of water, I was left in a stained theatre gown sitting up in a bed that had broken and would not flatten for over 24 hrs. Ward staff frequently shouted at each other from one end of the ward to the other - totally unprofessional in my view.
