What I liked
All of the Nurses, Consultants, meal providers, etc were very friendly, cheerful, helpful and informative. I shared a ward room with 2 -3 other ladies and we all seemed to get on well which helped the few days I stayed in hospital go quite quickly, which helped as I had previously never stayed in hospital.
I was also impressed with the menu for lunch and dinner choices, the food was a lot better than I had been expecting.
What could be improved
I would have liked someone to have taken the time to show me how to adjust the bed, where the alarm button was, etc, as this was not done when I arrived on the ward at approx 2000, it was almost assumed that I would already know all about these things.
I hope the 'staff' all realise how much of a difference they can and do make, what a lovely group of nurses, doctors, etc I met during my stay.
