I had to stay in hospital longer than was expected (nearly 2 weeks). I spent 5 days in the reception ward which was noisy and the staff were often overworked so some of my requests, and even medication times, were sometimes overlooked. This improved when I was moved to another ward although problems arose on days when a locum staff nurse was on duty who didn't know what to do. I was seen by a large number of different doctors, sometimes several in one day, who often gave me conflicting messages regarding my condition and treatment. On the plus side, I thought the food was fantastic. There was always a good choice and it was always delicious. The mealtimes were the highlights of my stay.
