"Stayed 27/2 to 8/03 2014 Beech Ward"

About: Heartlands Hospital

I was treated with a great disrespect by many of the staff. One instance when I refused to allow a male to help me wash I was told, "He is a health professional and if you don't let him help you won't get a wash". I am 52 years old and had been admitted after an accident. Also the treatment I saw of other older ladies worries me, I would never allow my relatives to be admitted to this hospital.
