"care for mother and new born"

About: Barnsley Hospital

my daughter had a section last week,they were released 24 hours later, then had to be readmitted 48 hours later,the were in the same room but had to be visited by different doctors.whilst her new born had a visit from one doctor my daughter wasnt visited for at least 24 hours,and then had to leave that ward to go see the doctor elsewhere in the hospital,this cant be good.the lack of information that was not given to her put her in a very frighterning position.her first born and major surgery,help should be there for them both, staffing levels 3 for the full ward, meals-menu`s left in room and not picked up so her food had to be reordered,then when tea was delivered she was asleep so she didnt get any until the on duty nurse had time to make her some,thankyou to that nurse, i can understand one thing going wrong but not a cataloge of things. i am not very happy at all.
