"Patient care"

About: Sunderland Royal Hospital

Anything else?

Sorry, but another issue - unrelated to mum's severe condition but which might adversely affect her recovery. Is it really healthy for a large yellow waste bin labelled as 'unpleasant waste' to be placed within a metre of a patient's bed (especially one diagnosed with pneumonia) right next to a sink used to dispense drinking water? I wonder why mum had two severe diarrhoea bouts today (which she said the the nurses handled so well and sensitively). Thankyou for that ladies.
