Posted by Unhappy Patient
I am currently an inpatient on Ward 14,I was admitted because of an infection that still needs to be sorted. I am horrified that visiting is only 1 hour in the evening. My elderly father came to see me tonight and is not will himself had only been on the unit 10 minutes and then asked to leave.
It's a well documented fact that visiting promotes recovery. Had I been on the Peter Smith Sugery Centre this would not have been a problem,nothing was a problem only that the patients where happy.
