What I liked
Some staff were extremely good ..others far from the caring nursing staff hospitals should have .
What could be improved
Cleanliness ..disgusting.Sink filthy,bedside table not cleaned during my 6 day stay ..bathroom not cleaned and ran out of paper.
Disposal of dirty dressings and plastic needle covers etc ..disgusting .My dressing lobbed onto bedside table .
Care when dropping pills and picking them up ..digusting ..table by my bed for 2 days until I requested it be moved.
Replacing bed base after trying to find vein in foot not done ..dangerous.
Report of agonising ankle pain from canula site ,resulting in being unable to walk ..ignored ..told i could walk!!
Canula removed next day incase of infection
Leg swollen and sore resulting the following week in heparin jab and scans re blood clot !
Canula site in arm red/sore ..reported Friday pm ..measured Sat pm ..consultant not happy Sunday am..canula moved ..told cant go home until infection cleared up.
Told there was a phone call for me..it was for someone with completely different name !
Cherrys dropped by patient opposite ..still on floor when I was discharged 3 days later.
Trauma unit excellent ..A&E excellent....special plastics unit disgraceful..needs a complete clean and some staff need to be refreshed on hygene and patient care .
Scared silly of the hospital now .
