My overall experience has been very positive in ward 15, with the assistance of helpful nursing staff who are always there to assist and offer support and advise. Staff are flexible in their approach although it is evident that the additional non nursing tasks have a major impact on the nursing tasks which nurses should be able to prioritise to the detriment of patients, This is mainly domestic duties, serving meals etc. ]
Given the nature of dermatology skin care, dietary meals could be more nutritional and fresh. There could also be more beds for the increasing needs of psoriasis sufferers to enable inadequate time for patients to fully recuperate. The need for additional beds is evidenced by the lengthy waiting time I had waiting to get seen despite the severity of my condition there was a 3 month wait before I got admiited for inpatient treatment.
