this review is on behalf of my son who has been too ill to comment, most of these things I mention I have seen. He was admitted for pain management and did not see a doctor for 2 days. Last time he was in the royal Blackburn hospital he contracted a nasty hospital acquired infection which meant he had to have a side room, which means that the staff should wear aprons, not once did I see any member of staff who came into his room wear an apron. He was originally told he could not have a shower then the staff changed their mind and the dirty towels where on the floor for 2 days. One member of the night staff would not come into his room and literally threw his medication to him from the door. This is unacceptable on any level. The standard of care he received was dreadful.
