What I liked
I was treated as a person, not an NHS number, all staff worked incredibly hard, were dedicated and yet had a sense of humour at the appropriate time. Primary concern was the patient and this came across from all members of staff.
What could be improved
On my last night, I was moved to another ward - this is somewhat disorientating although I appreciate the need for beds/room etc. Some elderly patients found this a bit difficult to adjust to.
All in all a very positive experience and my thanks go to all the nursing staff in Tye Green Ward.
