"Lack of compassion"

Poor nursing care throughout a 3. 5 week stay at QE Birmingham.
I feel the nurses I saw on ward 728 have no ability to work on their own initiative and required the doctors to spoon feed them every single step of the way.
Surely a fully qualified nurse would recognise the symptoms of a urine infection in a patient whom has recently had their catheter removed. Clearly too much to ask in ward 728. I had to literally beg them to check a urine sample for an infection!
A whole day of asking and 24 hours later antibiotics commenced for a urine infection. Just one example of a long list of poor experiences on this admission.
Such a disappointment. Lack of compassion. I only wonder why these people are in the nursing profession.
