"I had my son at the hospital by ..."

About: Croydon University Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I had my son at the hospital by emergency caesarean, as soon as I was admitted I was seen to straight away and the midwives were so helpful and friendly. When my son was delivered I was taken down very quickly and the staff were so kind and supportive. They would regularly check on me and the baby and the night staff just let me sleep. I had heard some very negative comments about the hospital but I had a wonderful experience.

What could be improved

The only problem was disposing of certain items that I had bled through, I was pointed to a room in which I wasnt sure exactly where I should put the clothing. Also the showers could have been cleaned better-there was mould around the shower.
