What I liked
some nurses were of excellent standard, professional caring and experts in their field.Sadly some other nurses were thoughtless and lacked any expertise.
The Consultant obviously did a good job as i am walking around painfree and able to eat what i want to.so thank you
What could be improved
some nurses need more training .role playing how patients act when in pain and feel vunerable.telling me i was 'awful 'when i wanted painkillers was not appropriate language.
when i asked to go to the toilet i was told the nurse couldnt help as it was a safety issue.it was about 'balance' a good nurse put her arm out and i lightly took her arm and got up.The first nurse caused me alot of distress as did the one who said i was awful.
again i cant thank certain nurses for there kindness thoughfulness and most of all their obvious expertise.
although i appreciate that abdomial surgery is painful,the tablets i went home with were inadequate tramadol made me very sick so was only left with ibrufen and paracetamol.i couldnt think straight to tell anyone dr or anyone.i know this may sound silly but i think if somebody rang patients to see how they are(follow up care)it would have helped me enormously.
