What I liked
Staff were friendly and most of them helpful. Ward was amazingly clean!
What could be improved
Ward was too hot most of the time, staff failed to mention that i would not be allowed off ward if i took sedative, after i was brought back to ward the last meal was missed so i sat all day from 8am and right until i was discharged at 11.30pm the same day without food, was only allowed to leave ward at 10.30pm for fresh air.
And to top it off i wasn't told by dr what was found during surgery so i now have to wait til i can see my own GP.
Wounds are now infected as nurse had to remove my stitches as they were tied too tight, also bruising that is spreading up my arm from wrist :( also very painful.
