I was a patient for about 3 weeks in this ward.
The nurses were very often quite rude and complained when my relatives asked to speak to the doctor.
One nurse in particular was very rude and I dreaded when she was on duty. She bullied all the women in the bay and made me feel silly when I asked what the tablets were for. I needed help to get to the bathroom and she told me off for buzzing when I needed to go. She told me she was too busy and I would have to wait then humiliated me for wetting the bed.
I felt very ashamed and cried until a student nurse helped me and changed my bed. The student nurse often felt the strain from working with this nurse but I felt that the student was the only bright spot in the ward and I have written to the university to praise her.
This nurse also bullied the student and shouted at her when the student noticed that the tablets were out of date in the trolley. I felt very frightened of the nurse. She was rough and when she washed me, she didn't shut the curtains so everyone could see me.
I hope never to return to this ward.
