"chaotic work practices"

About: Basildon University Hospital / Maternity

1. there is more nurses / midwifes on the corridors chasing themselves then actually with patients; 2. very badly organized - midwife spend 1 hour on the phone searching for someone to book another appointment for us; 3. consultant did not explain their thought process when making decision 4. patient meeting notes are not always documented on patient file; As result, midwifes need to spend additional time phoning around people to establish the facts and actual advice given by other doctors/consultants
