"I am in the late twenties and ..."

About: Derriford Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I am in the late twenties and I had to spend 5 days in Derriford where I found the ward that I was on incredably unclean. After a toilet had be used, it was not checked or cleaned, so I was forced to step around blood and just the basic uncleanness, that could have caused infection. Each day I had a different kind of test and I was never informed of results.

What could be improved

Cleaning of the wards and toilet/shower rooms more than once a day in the morning. Information should be passed between doctors, ward staff and patient.
