"the night shift nurse was the ..."

About: Russells Hall Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

the night shift nurse was the most freindly of all i had contact with

What could be improved

Some attitudes... iwas in for 3 days and two nights.The Doctor who put a cannula in my arm, left the needle on the side of my bed cabinet.

There was used plaster and cap under my bed.

On 3 occasions i was not given food.

Another time had to request water 4 times!!.....waiting 2-3 hours before this request was granted. I was not on nil by mouth

Anything else?

day shift nurses not friendly, left on my own and not checked on...an awful time
