What I liked
The staff were pleasant.
What could be improved
I don't even know where to begin,the whole system is backwards.Available beds in the MAU room would have been a better idea than silly reclining chairs,I have a spinal condition and was unable to sit without extreme pain.Privacy in the Mau room,I thought dignity,confidentiality and privacy were supposed to be a standard practice but not here.No MRSA tests were done despite my discharge letter saying that they were awaiting my MRSA test results.Departments seemed to be communicating like 'chinese-whispers' and the correct information was being lost.Doctors failed to inform me of what medication I was being given.Some patients actually benefit from knowing what is happening with their health care.
I was sat in A&E for 4 hours,where all the patients being seen in triage could be overheard because the nurse didn't close the door.I think that is terrible.
This hospital is dire.
