"Labour ward/maternity ward night nurses loud! Bell..."

Anything else?

Gave birth with c section recently. Night nurses are very rude and have no respect for mums as they have loud conversations in the hallway at night. They don't close the doors to the shared cubicles so that we don't hear whats going on on corridors when we're trying to get rest at night. One of them closed the door when we asked her but forgot to do it a second time. They just shout in the corridors and make you feel worthless. The bell on the door is also extremely loud and annoying.

I'm giving birth there soon unfortunately, so looking forward to my husband being allowed to stay with me for the night very much!
