I had an abominable hysterectomy but some of the staff nurses kept asking me if I had a wound,do they not check patient's notes? The night staff were talking very loud all night arranging their Christmas outing with no regard to the fact that patients need to sleep. The food was appalling. There was dirt and fluff round the locker wheels which had never been moved for cleaning. After surgery I was given a 1litre jug of water which I could not lift or pour out and no one helped. The nurse who took my blood on Sunday morning used a vein on the back of my hand which has caused a very large blood leak and destroyed the vein,having previously had a mastectomy I have to be careful because I only have the left arm for any surgical procedures. There was a real lack of care and consideration for the patient . I also did not like having men in the next bay,using same toilet and bathroom single sex wards especially after surgery are much better.
