What I liked
I was surprised that mixed sex wards are still in operation. The Nursing Staff you could not fault,they were excellent.
Cleanliness of the hospital was poor the bathroom definitely was short of a good clean. What did upset me was that a few days after being discharged I received a letter from the hospital addressed to me, on opening it I discovered I had been sent another patients assessment form, I phoned the hospital and asked to be put through to the ward I was on and was told it was a patient who had been on the same ward and was asked to return it to them.
This was a serious breach of Patient Confidentiality, There was also a sick note enclosed with my name and nothing else on it and not signed by a Doctor or dated. clearly some other patients details had been put on my file but I am wonderering if some-one else had received some document belonging to me.
What could be improved
Thorough cleaning of the hospital and the cups that the soup is served in throwing away they look so old I never touched the soup, just looking at them made me feel sick.
Get rid of mixed sex wards.
