What I liked
After being admitted with a miscarriage, I found all the staff in A & E, Ward 14, theatre and theatre recovery absolutely fantastic. Very understanding, explained everthing they were doing. Ward was clean. They made a terrible experience bearable and I would like to thank them all!!!
What could be improved
I was originally seen on the early pregnancy unit on ward 13. I found them to be very clinical and cold and they made me feel uncomfortable. Was told to phone them if I had any problems, as I was bleeding, however when i phoned with worsening bleeding and severe abdominal pain, I felt like they treated me like I was stupid and that I was bothering them. I subsequently ended up in A & E, and then having to have a surgical procedure. As an employee of this hospital, I was disappointed that an area specialising in problems in early pregnancy would treat people like this at such a stressful time.
