"Too much time filling in forms"

About: Rotherham Hospital / Colorectal surgery Rotherham Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I have been in hospital four times in the last five years twice for bowel cancer (the last op didn't work) and twice for knee replacements.

The nurses did their best, but they were run off their feet, I felt they weren't spending enough time with patients and too much time filling in forms etc.

Response from Kerry Hollingworth, Corporate Affairs Officer, The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust

Dear Shrub54, thank you for your posting on Patient Opinion; we really appreciate your feedback on your hospital stays. It would be helpful if you could provide us with details of your ward stays, however with regard to your feedback on nurses spending time filling in forms, I am able to confirm that a review of nursing documentation is being carried out.

Thank you again,

With best wishes,
