I believe a few staff work very hard and have experienced this for myself again recently, the rest seem to be sneaking out to have a smoke, or chatting about broken down cars or their love life, i know it can be stressful but i have a stressful job and i dont need to share it with all and sundry.
It takes hours to get booked in and ever longer to get discharged. There is no choice of menu you get whats left, bearing in mind some people have dietary needs (such as myself- i need high intake of rougage) i got sausages and chips after my operation, hardly what one would want after surgery. where is the heathly 5 portions a day regime? Some staff work hard and earn their money and one of the health care assistant was rushed off her feet from the the minute she arrived and she left. She was always polite, happy and nothing was too much trouble for her.
I think there is still far too much waste on the wards and they are not run effectively. My bed could have been given to another if my discharge had not taken over 3 hours. That would have saved a meal, additional clean bedding, etc. etc. I could go on about concerns but i know from experience they fall on deaf ears, and there will be reasons for all the time delays and lazy staff.
But if i was a powerful person of status i would spend some time on the wards and watch and observe the culture of some staff.
