"Understaffed on D8 at QMC"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / General surgery

(as the patient),

I was a patient on ward D8 at the Queen's Medical Centre for treatment to my spine.

I was left on a bedpan for 20-30 minutes, and this was most uncomfortable as it was digging into the incision which was made during the operation. Also, the contents of the bedpan spilt all over the bed and me. The nurses don't have time to see you - there were 2 nurses to cope with 6 patients in my bay and another 6 patients in the next bay.
