"ward 14"

About: Darlington Memorial Hospital

Staff in general were amazing,especially one nurse,very patient kind and giving however on coming across a staff nurse we were immediately brought back down to earth, they was shockingly rude and abrupt,my mam was at end of life and we would have expected the same care as the first nurse had given. The second nurse made us feel in the way,their manner was extremely bad
