What I liked
Some of the staff were really great nothing was to small to help
What could be improved
looking after belongings in theatre, and staff to be gentle on wound when putting a dressing on when bleeding through the first.
I was admitted on monday 21st november 2011 i arrived at 7am as stated in my letter. i got shown to my room straight away but was not admitted till 10.10 just 20 minutes till surgery. 3 hours was a long time. the aniestasist perscribed me some premeds but took nursing staff 45 minutes to bring them.
I wore my dressing gown and sandles down to theatre where they were put in a clear bag and was told they will return with me after my operation, which they never did. I ask the nurse who was looking after me if he knew where they were and he said he would go check. So after 2hours i asked politly if he had been able to find my belongings, he replied with attitude that they will find them in the morning taking in mind it was only 4pm. Now i dont know about you but i did not want to walk to the toilet in my boxer shorts and the gown i wore in theatre.
I got out of bed to go toilet to be shouted at to get back into bed, for which my partner replied he i just going to the toilet, to have this male nurse shouting and telling her off. this was not fair at all.
My dressing from theatre was bleeding through, when i brought it to the attention of the nurse he said it was ok and will be fine, how can bleeding be fine, so i asked again to get attitude and a dressing thrown at me, and for him to man handle the wrist i had operated on the pain was intense, i was not happy at all. later monday at 8pm i asked for them to look at my dressing as it was bleeding through my second dressing to get even more attitude because his shift had finished my god bed side manor was attrostus.
next day belongings still not found 9 members of nuring have been asked now and i still have not recieved these back.
as i was still in servre pain from my operation and being man handled i buzzed for pain killers and 25 minutes and noone came i had to get up and go ask but had to wait 10 minutes till someone came to me to be told you can have some in a hour so i had to suffer.
"to be treated in such a bad way to suffer in pain"
