What I liked
What could be improved
They could of provided much more care than was given, the cleanliness of the ward drastically needs improving, organisation . . .well there is none.
My partner went to ward 12 for two days then got transferred to ward 15 due to shortage of beds, she was in ward 15 for 4 days, and no doctor came to see her dispite getting on to them constantly, one doctor finally came on the 4 night and told my partner that she is so so sorry but she was forgotten about, they thought she had been discharged 4 days ago when they moved her to ward 15.
She was told she could go home and come back tomorrow (saturday) to get her medication if she wished. She was told that her tablets would definately be ready by 12 noon. We arrived the next day around 13:00 and guess what, no meds. The pharmacy shut at 12, we had to wait around for 2 and a half hours for them to arrive and got out of there at 15:30
Please if your reading this save yourself and your family the heartache and choose a different hospital
My partner stayed at this hospital on ward 12, everything was fine until they moved her to "ward 15".
The care was disgusting, when she first arrived she had to make her own bed, and so did a lady across from her, the lady across from her ask a senior nurse if her bed was ready to get into (in otherwords politely saying it's not made) and the nurse said yes and walked away.
There was a lady on the floor stuck between her bed and a matress (which had been put there as she cant walk and keeps getting out of bed) i went and told the nurses and hca and they just said we'll get round to it, 30 mins it took them.
My girlfriends bed had blood splattered all up her curtain and dispite asking them it never got changed the 4 days she was there.
When other patients were in need, the curtains round there beds had big 2 foot gaps in them so the patient had no privacy at all.
One lady was aloud to roll around on the floor for days with no staff caring but when she had a visitor she was quickly changed, tidied up and gotten ready for the visit. She was rolling round with just a night gown, no pijarma bottoms were provided for the patient which should of been, for the patients dignaty and to save her embarrasment.
Absolutely no rush to give out required pain killers (not regular).
One woman unable to go her self, desperatley need the toilet, she asked the student nurse (s/n) and she said "you will have to wait while i make this bed", the lady said "no i really need to go now before i mess myself, please". The s/n turned to another s/n and said quite loud, "see what we have to put up with, now she can wait till i am ready". The s/n was too late and the lady messed herself.
Absolutley no dignaty or respect there.
An average of 3 hot drinks provided per day.
I would not recommend this place to anyone, its disgusting.
There are some excellent hca's around within the nhs and people like these give them all a bad name.
