What I liked
Cleanliness is of a higher capacity that the last time that I visited. The rooms are decorated to a good standard.
What could be improved
*Parking fees reduced for siblings (Direct Family) who have a Parent with a long term illness, requiring a stay of more than a month.
*Clear consise information between Consultants, Registrars and staff nurses so that care and treatment is cosistant, keeping the patient informed.
*Treatment for chemotherapy is regulary monitored so that it is given correctly, this could be achieved through logging all errors made and reviewing them, & improve training.
*More Nurses on the ward to take time to talk with the patients, 5 mins once a day is a small amount of time, 24hr is a long day, especially when the patient has no visiting relatives
*More comodes on wards like Haemotology, where diarrhoea is a constat side effect from treament, so that the patients dignity is preserved. When attached to two drip machines and tiredness from treatment has set in...getting to the toilet in a hurry becomes difficult!
