"post whittles operation"

About: Southampton General Hospital

Anything else?

after been in HDU for several days my stay on E8 was very unsatisfactory .I received no direct nursing care and was left to my own efforts for personal hygiene . My wound was niether looked at or enquired as to how it felt . A drip stand holding my P.C.A. was removed once I was on the ward to use for another patient ,this meant I was unable to move about the ward as the P.C.A. was too heavy to carry. The stand was eventually replaced by one held together by electricians insulation tape !
