"Nurse Duties"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

When i was in hospital before this time the nurses went around taken your blood pressure,temperature,if you have passed water,and opened your bowels.

They seem to leave the last two out now.

The reason being i am in the same predicament now it is now coming up to six days and i have not opened my bowels,and i am struggling to pass water.

Can you tell me why you don`t ask the last two questions.

This is a serious issue.
