"Clinical decision unit"

About: Queen Elizabeth Hospital (Birmingham)

Our recent experience of this unit is lack of communication amongst all members of staff on this unit to patients and relatives are a non entity when questions are asked about care they do not bother to answer all to busy to communicate in the aspect of care which if you are seriously ill is important to tell the patient what is happening and also the relatives who are extol kin . Patient left to fend for theirselves in total isolation .Drs who see patients no introduction to patient or relatives then walk off has if the patient does not matter and the relatives do not exist
