"Lack of air conditioning etc"

About: York Hospital

Anything else?

The nursing care was the best.The heat was unbearable it actually made me ill,the staff looked everywhere for a fan, nothing.This was an extremely stressful situation.Why are patients and staff subject to these sort of conditions?Staff in other types of work would have walked out.Surely to goodness the cost of buying a few fans for evey ward would not cost the earth and would make life much more pleasant,I am absolutley disgusted and the thought of spending time in hospital is frightening.
