"Nursing care,I dont think its ..."

About: Southmead Hospital

(as the patient),

What could be improved

Nursing care,I dont think its appropriate for patients to have to change or empty their own drainage bags and catheter bags after an operation,also I was left in a wet bed twice 3 Hrs plus due to staff saying they didnt have time to change bedding, the food was inedible a boiled egg does not constitute a balanced meal for recovering patients.

Anything else?

mens washrooms on U ward could be improved,moving furniture to get into the showerand trying to hold shower head and shower was almost impossible,cleanliness could have been improved across the board.All in all a very bad experience at this hospital
