"Posh wards do not help patients. ..."

About: Royal Derby Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

Posh wards do not help patients. Doctors and Nurses do or at least should.

What could be improved

Patient Care by Doctors and Nurses

Anything else?

Although the hospital is state of the art. I would

prefer the staff to be more caring and this includes certain Doctors. Cleanliness was not paramount and neither was the treatment when it came to treating a patient with infections. My father died your hospital through infections that he acquired while in your care and that you failed to treat effectively because a certain Doctor did'nt think he was worth it. I will never ever recommend your hospital to anyone.
