The involvement team visits the patient and carer meeing on Ward B50 every 2 months and gathers feedback from patients. Here are some of the things people said about the ward:
Diane is now our activity co-ordinator and since she came things have improved. We have more buffets and it is nice to be able to go back down to the gym again. I feel stronger and there is a social relaxing atmosphere. Jane the physio is good.
it is a great shame that there are no volunteers yet on the ward as I think this would free up staff to spend more time with patients and families for 1:1 meetings.
Food is excellent, there is plenty to eat
I think ID badges should be re-designed to be clearer with larger lettering and photos but I like the fact that staff don't wear uniforms.
Medication is handled very professionally on the ward. Staff show us medication leaflets and offer time to talk about medication.
Sue told us about involvement in care plans with the patient, carers, families and staff all working together. Sue said of course this was with our permission as patients.
