My Mother recently had an operation at the hospital and after she woke up from it she had severe vomiting due to the anaesthetic. As soon as she woke up she had to vomit and the nurse threw a vomit bowl at her and did not even bother to help her. Luckily my mother's friend was there who helped her vomit and even went to clean the vomit bowl for her. If she was not there she would have been left alone to vomit and she could have even choked. Considering she was in severe pain and not fully conscious you would have thought the nurse would give her more attention and care. I am very disappointed by this and I expected better care especially as we paid for this operation. My Mother did mention that other nurses were kind and caring but it is sad to say that one member of staff failed to do her job at a crucial moment. The quality of nurses say everything about a hospital and this sort of behaviour from a nurse is inhumane and disgusting.
