Right where do I start?
I have sat here on this brown sofa asking staff and patients that are awake, and asking them what they think is good and what could do with a change here are their responses:
Good community atmosphere.
Supportive staff- goes beyond job role- even out of hours.
Persuade patients to follow a healthier life style.
Positive communication- between staff and patients.
Facilities- drinking dispenser.
Good space- when loud can go on your own (if allowed.)
Support and mutual respect between patients.
Conservatory and sensory room, available- most places don’t have this.
Needs to be dimmer lights in communal areas, as it’s very light even at night.
Painting on walls- different colours,
Layout should be more open.
Doors slam- very loud.
More one to one time with named nurse- not currently happening.
Ear plugs should be available at all times.
Freedom- fresh air- garden time- our door activities (everyday if ok?)
Shouting. Unnecessary/ inappropriate comments.
Floors are dirty- when you can’t wear shoes the dirt shows a lot!
**Staff have to pay for food! Dude! This isn’t fair!! This is one I think someone needs to do something about! It’s not fair on the staff! The canteen staff make so much of it surely the staff can have some? For free?
Overflow meals need to be given to the home less. Or staff!
