What I liked
What could be improved
staff-patient-visitor communication. Husband was in the stroke unit and his treatment was disgraceful. soiled pad left on the trolley where he ate; he was given fish and chips when he was on a soft diet. he was left on toilet far too long and when I said something he was then whisked off and on in a minute before he'd done anything. The list is endless. I kept a diary. All attempts to talk to people met with a blanket 'lack of communication'. I kept quiet in the end as I was worried about my husbands welfare and just wanted him out of there!!!
I am just grateful my husband cannot remember anything of his time on the stroke unit
