What I liked
The majority of the nursing staff was excellent.
What could be improved
Cleanliness and Doctors communication Skills.
My daughter who is 18 has been in the hospital for two weeks with severe abdo pain, a bowel blockage was found and cleared but the pain has got worse yet her doctor insists there is nothing wrong he has refused to do any more tests to find out what is going on, yet she is relying on morphine to get any relief. I have asked staff if I could speak to this doctor on my daughters behalf but this has not been arranged. We have asked for her to be transferred to a different hospital but this has never happened. She is a celiac and the food provided for her has been atrocious, although this has improved after a meeting with the catering manager. My daughter just wants this pain to stop and for the doctors to actually listen to her concerns.
