"Chestnut Ward Dietitians, Nutritional Nurse's ..."

About: Scarborough General Hospital

All the Nurse's Clinical Staff and Domestics were fantastic on this Ward. I really don't know how they cope. The ward is so busy, packed to the rafters. In some case's I would say to a dangerous level. Yet nothing was to much trouble. The ward is very clean but would say it need's a revamp as it looks tired. The decor is much to be desired hence giving the look it's not clean but is spotless. The only think that i found not so good it waiting for my tablets It took 6 hours. They really should have a pharmacy staff dealing with people leaving hospital and out Patients. And Pharmacy Staff dealing with wards only. This way maybe it could free up more beds quickly. I not sure if this happens or not. The staff in X-ray explained every thing and were very Kind through out having a stomach Rig inserted. The Dietitians and Nutritional Nurse's were great and on the ball with every thing from start to finish. They were very organised. Thank-you for the care I revived
