What I liked
consultants are excellent - saved my husband's life on several occasions
What could be improved
nurses attitude - sloppy and lazy. Would not listen re. medication until I contacted PALS [very good]
meals 'forgotten' and the prescribed physiotherapy still hasn't arrived, due to a mysterious staff shortage [ mysterious to the nurses!]
Haven't shaved my husband despite promising to do so each day.
all this despite myriads of nurses and student nurses milling around/
If you are seriously ill you need a relative with you every day to check on them.l
Visiting is from 2 pm - the doctors go round in the morning.
IRelatives naturally want an update on recovery, but there is no one to talk to sensibly.
