"Short staffed maybe"

About: Churchill Hospital

This third hospital I have been in during past few weeks. Although homely in appearance, I soon realised that it isn't that clean. Filled urine pots left in toilet for days, dirty showers and I've been in 4 days and not once have they cleaned my bed table down. My blood soaked sheets were not changed for 48 hours either. I reported a problem to a nurse I had with my leg and was told doc would come look at it, no doc came and lucky the large lump went down.
