About: King's Mill Hospital

Anything else?

I arrived at ward 31 for admission at 6pm on the 11/8/13 I was shown to day room as no one was available to admit me I was given a room about 6 30 pm nurse was backwards and forwards to do admission my op the next day went ok and I can not fault the excellent care of the doctors but I felt that I was ignored by the nursing staff and they were not very reassuring to my self or my family on the day of my discharge Monday 19/6/13 the doctor told me I could go home at lunch time my family got to the ward at 2 pm and I was finally discharged at 4 pm as had to wait for medication of which point I was getting very annoyed I no it is not the nurse fault but her attitude was well what do you want me to do about it a little reassurance would have gone a long way i was give no advice on anything the community nurse came to home the next and asked for the letter from the ward I was in I wasn't given any letter if I am unfortunate to go in hospital again it will be anywhere but kings mill
