About: Northwick Park Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

Two excellent male nurses who knew their job and cared for my husband with skill

What could be improved

Diagnosis and treatment doctor training and continuity of care with ONE doctor not a different one each day.Communication.

Anything else?

Any equipment removed from a patient must be examined to see that it is entire.A catheter taken out was not checked despite being bloody.This resulted in a serious infection and organic delirium which will have ongoing effects on an 82 yr old man
