About: South Tyneside District Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

I was very satisfied with the way I was treated by all hospital staff from domestic persons, nurses, and doctors. I was thrilled with how the doctors listened to me, and shared my concern. I felt that I was very well taken care of in terms of: the medication that was administered to me; the dedicated attention I received while sharing my history, symptoms, and concerns; the tests that were promptly given; and the care that is to follow with being refered to a neurologist for more investigation and tests. One of the consultants was very efficient and empathetic. He is one of the best doctors I have ever communicated with.

What could be improved

I don't have too much negativity to share other then during the night, I would of appreciated more silence from the on staff nurses, and the lights in the room to be fully turned off- as it was hard to get to sleep. The hospital beds were uncomfortable, but were good in the fact that they can be adjusted.

Anything else?

Thanks for the good care WARD 6
