"Excellent nursing care but..."

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

Overall really excellent nursing care on this ward when I had to have a short stay here after surgery, however I was pretty shocked by one incident when the fitted catheter fell onto the floor (not sterile) and was then fitted back to me from being on the floor. This didn't seem sterile or common sense as the floor wasn't clean. I've had discomfort with this area since not sure if two are related. The rest of my experience on this ward was good.
