"Nothing at all about the AMU ..."

About: King's Mill Hospital

(as a relative),

What I liked

Nothing at all about the AMU department had spent of 2 days waiting to been seen by a doctor on this ward kept waiting informed of nothing by nurses only the doctor is on his way ! asked for pain killers will have to ask the doctors when they arrive. told to wait over night and had blood pressure then more waiting the doctors start a job and walk away for hours . The nurses could not be botherd about my partner crying in pain the only thing we kept hearing from the desk is wheres my pen whats holidays have we got off and can you get the phone i'm off for a break !

poor service kept waiting for far to long and sent home told to come back monday with pain killers after 2 full days of waiting for a doctor


What could be improved

Staff's attitude one doctor spending time spending time to make a desition instead of passing off

no food or drink offerd on ward but never arrived twice

Anything else?

blood cleaned up of floor instead of being mopped over
