"Very poor night nursing care"

About: Royal Gwent Hospital / General Surgery

(as the patient),

I was in for a major operation, the majority of the night staff were uncaring. One male nurse shouted at me so much if I was well enough I would have walked out of the ward and reported him. There was only one patient in the ward beside myself He continued to shout at me even when he made me cry. I call that abuse. Another nurse was sleeping when she was looking after the desk, I couldn't wake her up with a tap on the desk when I passed on my crutches going to the loo in fact I was in 13 days and most of that time in the nights nobody was on the desk, when I wanted to go to the toilet and on another occcasions too serious to put in writing another thing happened. I worry that I will have to go back into hospital for another operation. the day staff was good that could not be said of the night staff
