"very little. i have had missed ..."

About: Southampton General Hospital

(as the patient),

What I liked

very little. i have had missed courses of anti biotics and pain killers, left connected to a drip for an hour after it finished even though i asked for it be removed as i required the toilet.was left with no water jug for a whole day even though i requested it to be filled on a number of occasions.

What could be improved

patient care i had to help the people in my bay do simple things like fetching towels and flannels. getting washing stuff from the shower that was left by patient on crutches.

communication between patients and nurses/doctors as non-excistant

Anything else?

if i ever require medical attention again i will go to winchester or portsmouth. overall a very disappointing stay
