What I liked
Most of the staff were very kind (nurses)
What could be improved
I would have liked to have got ready on the word before I went down to the operating theatre for my 9 hour spinal reconstruction operation , they started to get me ready in the day room and then moved me into the word toilet and the toilet was very dirty, this should never happen to anybody and I would like this to be improved so no one has the worry like I did of picking germs up and transferring them to the operating theatre.
I would have liked to have been helped more when I was dressing , I don't know what I would have done if my husband hadn't helped me.
Also my pain killers were never on time so I was in severe pain and on the day I was discharged they took my prescription away at lunch time to sort my medication out and I was left in agony and they came back that evening with a big bag full of medication with no instruction on which combination to take, we had to ask our local pharmacist .
The word was very under staffed and the Patients were very neglected due to this.
