"The dreaded wait"

About: James Paget University Hospital

The ward 6 I was recently unfortunate to be in for 10 days. The elderly dementia ladies were treated excellently, cannot praise enough. Why do the Auxillary nurses go deaf when the Toilet buzzer or for other reasons the patients need to get help, get ignored. even switched off over my bed and left. They are not always busy.I got very distressed, I am 75 and had fallen and needed operation on my knee.
