What I liked
I found the nursing staff very helpfull and considerate, unfortunately the lack of staff let this hospital, staff and patients down.
What could be improved
The number of nursing staff is drastically low staff cannot give the attention to patients which is needed. Following an accident my elderly father spent 2 months in RPH. Visiting every day some times twice I have first hand experience of staff trying their best to care for high dependency patients, what I experienced at times made a traumatic time even worse. I actually felt I had to be there to make sure he was getting the attention he needed. I know that this is not a one off case and unless the staffing issues are resolved people will continue to be neglected when they need care the most.
