I have never written a review in my life but have been so outraged that I feel compelled to do so. My elderly and disabled husband, after having very major surgery was brought on an OT visit to a scabies infested area, against my express wishes that such a vulnerable post-op and immunocompromised patient should not be. He was brought in thin clothing and slippers shivering and freezing, without even his coat or even a blanket, whilst both the OT and Physio accompanying him, had their thick coats on. Worst the OT and Physio came fully clad in their disinfectant gear- aprons etc, whilst my husband was just brought in with no such protection. The staff only seem to care about protecting themselves, without any regard for the patient involved. This hospital is a disgrace. When I spoke to my husband in the evening he was in tears from this experience. The scabies was contracted from chase farm hospital in the first place and has infected my whole family.It is a dirty filthy hospital. when my husband was unable to sleep because of intense itching, rather than getting a doctor to examine him, the nurses told me he was apparently suddenly having a reaction to the starch in the sheets and I should bring in my own sheets for him. I lugged a bag of heavy sheets in on 2 buses- only to be told by another nurse that it is not " policy" to accept sheets from me! I would like a call from the chief executive. The way my husband was treated is unforgivable and is a disgrace. PS the dept. my husband is in does not even appear on your list! so I've had to post unknown dept.
