"Had a room to myself as I was ..."

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske)

(as the patient),

What I liked

Had a room to myself as I was thought to be possibly contagious

What could be improved

So noisy, staff chatting, printing off papers in the early hours. One healthcare worker saying things that could have been suggestive, even in front of my husband. Trying to jolly me along when I was in extreme pain.

Anything else?

I was given a double dose of antibiotics which was worrying. People not good at putting canulas in and that was tiring.
