What I liked
A and E - the doctors sorted me out efficiently and quickly - i think if you are a real emergency the service is excellent. the doctors had good knowlege and responded with the correct treatment without any time waisting -thankyou.
MAU -the doctors are great and work terrible hours and still manage to be friendly and well natured.
What could be improved
MAU department - needs pulling apart and starting again. I had to share a bay with men (i'm female you may guess) i was not informed about the fact that i was in a bay with men and i worked it out for myself when i heard someone coughing !- the doctors on call were great but the night staff nurses really didnt want to look after patients. I wasn't given a blanket and the doctor admitting me asked if i would like one! i had to turn off my drip when it had run through -no one came to check it and i felt so sure no one would come back to check it - i stayed awake until it was through.
I recon the night nurses need a good shake up and single sex bays should be the normal not the exception please.
