"Poor poor poor"

Initial emergency care was what i would expect.It's the wards that let this hospital down mostly.
The last time my husband was admitted for surgery (a fortnight ago) doctor told us as he was being admitted that they'd changed their mind about what op they would perform (?!)
So...ok docs know best right? After surgery and admitted to ward he waited over 3 hours for a drink of water, they forgot to order him any food, we had to tell staff how to take temperature, help put arm cuff on for blood pressure as they didn't know how, remove the cuff as they forgot to take it off, and keep asking for a drip hook , they just left several drip bags on the bed next to him! This didn't improve over the week he was in eventually deciding to discharge himself as after collapsing from a deflated lung they'd failed to notice they then also found he needed medication for infection in surgery site. A week on and we are still waiting for a doctor to become available who can prescribe the anti biotics to kill the infection! This is a shorter version of events. I could go on!
Poor poor poor poor poor!
