About: Crawley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had a ENT operation at the hospital. My experience was over all acceptable. I had an over night stay and the staff were professional. My only complaint was a catching a rather nasty chest infection soon after surgery. I was amazed how quickly it came about, as I had no chest issues before arrival. Though I was given a fan and paracetamol and looked after well by the ward staff. But it does bring to question and concern how clean our hospitals are. It is hard enough recovering from an operation without an extra bug or two being thrown in as well. Perhaps more disinfectant in the theatre wouldn't have gone amiss.
