"i was brought into the hospital ..."

About: Barnsley Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

i was brought into the hospital suffering from a stoke.

After being treated in the accident & emergency i was taken onto the admissions unit,

when i woke up i found i was in a 4 bed unit with 2 men & another lady

I undersand that the hospital is pushed for beds but privacy & dignity are the concerns to wake up & find 2 men in the same room is not pleasent but a concern

What could be improved

the doctor could have been more informative

about what had happened to me & the treatment that i would be getting

Anything else?

I was moved onto the stroke unit on Friday afternoon where i was assessed by the stroke co-ordinator & the stoke team i was released on the same medication 4 days later
