My brother was the patient not me!! He was recently admitted to ward 5, following a referral from A&E . We were all very pleased in all aspects off his care . The staff were very professional and caring . He had a minor procedure a few days after admission - all went well .
Unfortunately the discharge procedure really let the hospital down . He was discharged by the doctors at 3pm , he then started his wait for his TTA`s to be delivered to the ward . He waited and waited!!! Until one of the nurses tried to track them down, to find that they had been delivered to the wrong ward . The Nurse went themself and collected them, and my sister-in-law went to bring my brother home at 9.45 pm . Really very unsatisfactory for all concerned . He waited almost 7 hours in all !!
He did stay on ward 5 . and wasn't taken to the discharge ward at all .
So there was a `blip` in the procedure , making everyone very cross with the waiting about.
But as I said we were all very happy , just the last few hours let it down .
