Clean, efficient busy ward 11. Like the fact staff are doing 12 hour shifts. Greater continuity of care, felt the staff really knew me & time wasn’t wasted on handovers.
Good general knowledge, but missed the expertise of those who worked within specialist areas ( in my case colorectal expertise)
Need to give greater guidance to patients on what is acceptable. The person next to me listened to their iPad for hours during the day without using headphones. They also switched it on again at 0230am, I assume because they thought no one could hear it!!! They weren’t confused just very thoughtless & was never challenged by staff.
