"I felt ignored during my stay at the Princess Royal Hospital "

About: The Princess Royal Hospital / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I went to hospital with an Arthroscopic Subacromial Decompression in my shoulder and trapped nerve elbow. They nearly forgot to do the elbow. They cancelled fellow patients operation 10 mins before going to pre op room.

I felt a complete lack of care towards me from greater majority of nursing staff who treated me. It seemed like they were chatting amongst themselves most of the time.

Curries being delivered to nursing staff during night duty creating horrid curry smell throughout ward. I found this very unpleasant while feeling ill after surgery and stuck in bed feeling ignored.
