"Generally sympathetic nursing ..."

(as the patient),

What I liked

Generally sympathetic nursing staff (but not all of them!)

What could be improved

Cleanliness, communication, patient involvement in decision making. I needed to stay over night as I had no one to look after me for the 24 hours post surgery and I was made to feel as if I were a huge imposition on them.

Anything else?

Hospital is in MAJOR need of updating - wards are very old and out of date.
