"SHO's and Registrars very ..."

About: St Helier Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

SHO's and Registrars very helpful. Never managed to speak to consultant though

What could be improved

My relative was constantly being transferred to different wards resulting in medication chaos and lack of personal care. At one time she was moved twice in one day!! Apparently all arranged by Admin Staff She was in hospital for 8 weeks and only once had a bath and that was by a temporary nurse from Mary Moore Ward

Anything else?

Nursing care appalling seemed to be complete lack of morale and very unhappy overworked nurses particularly no attention if in side room. The exception was Mary Moore Ward which was brilliant and really showed up the lack of care elsewhere-can't speak highly enough of this ward
