"My mother on sunrise b ward"

About: Queen's Hospital (Romford)

Anything else?

After spending 3 days in the MAU , medical assessment unit my mother was transferred up to sunrise b ward . The communications between the different wards was shocking. The doctor at the MAU raised some serious concerns about my mothers health , yet after spending one day on sunrise b all of these concerns no longer were relevant. The clinical care on this ward is next to none , not too mention the staff shortages. Try and spend as much time as possible with your family at the ward as the care is of very low standard.

Response from Queen's Hospital

I was personally able to visit your mother; as I was on the ward seeing another patient. She recognised your feelings, but reported to me that she felt looked after and cared for. I am happy to speak to you should you wish to discuss this further. Please contact me via switchboard on 01708 435 000. Yours sincerely, Flo Panel-Coates Director of Nursing
