"Mother in law in surgical 7"

About: Princess Royal University Hospital (Orpington)

My mother in law was 101 when she passed away in Farnborough Hospital on 30/01/2014. She was in there for five weeks, she was treated with the highest respect and kindness, she was always clean and even creamed as often as possible to help her dry skin. The staff were amazing working in the most badly designed hospital I have ever been inside. To get to surgical 7 you have to walk through 6 or 8, all surgical wards, how are the staff expected to keep infection away with all an sundry walking around. Shame on you architects and those in Bromley Council that allowed it to be built
