"communication between consultants ..."

About: University Hospital (Coventry)

(as the patient),

What I liked

communication between consultants and anaethetists and myself

What could be improved

nurses attitude,professionalism,giving i.v drugs ontime and not 6 hrs late !!


Anything else?

nurses were having a row outside my room about my drugs not being given at correct times e.g; 6hrs late i.v antibiotics

there was also a dirty gown and stockings in my bathroom throughout my stay until i disposed of them myself. INFECTION !!!

got chucked out of my room before i even had anyone to collect me.

Although i had a latex allergy EVERYONE that came into treat me wore LATEX gloves despite having allergy alert on my notes!!!!

NOT IMPRESSED having to keep telling qualified doctors and nurses to constantly change their gloves.
