About: St Helens Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked


What could be improved

i was admitted on mon night for surgery the following day, on arrival i was kept waiting for 3 hours to be booked in.the ward if u can call it that was dark n dirty.the nurse was yawning all through my booking in. during the evening i witnessed several patients coming back from theatre one who apparently had problems with a spinal which wore off too quick was given drugs to help, she got back on ward and needed moving into another bed one nurse said come on lets do it now while shes comatoesed!!! not very reasurring. i also hads to on numerus occasions get nursing staff for patients requiring help with buzzers not working.an old lady was sick all over herself and was left for 2 hours in that state. i was already worried about surgery and lack of nursing proffesionalism didnt aid my desision.

Anything else?

i would like to thank my consultant for being such a caring and proffesional doctor,he understood my concernse about surgery and respected my decision to leave.many thanks to him for making me feel human and respected.
