"Nursing staff at RHH are a bit disorganised!"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital / General surgery

(as the patient),

I went to see my doctor at the local surgery with what I thought was a minor problem, but was immediately referred to RHH for surgery that evening. The doctor was very caring and thorough in her referral. As an in-patient in RHH (J ward) my experience was quite frustrating! My notes were lost, my drugs/dressings were lost, I blocked a bed all day whilst these were sorted. When I did get discharged RHH's referral of me to the District Nurse did not reach them so I had to remedy this myself. The District Nurses and surgery nurses were great. I conclude that they have a great community and primary care but the nursing staff at RHH are a bit disorganised!
