What could be improved
less agency nurses who don't seem bothered
Nurses on the ward spent longer arguing who was supposed to be working that night than on any other thing.
Medicines were prescribed in liquid form to my son for the incredible pain he was in after splintering his elbow but he was nil by mouth for an operation
so no pain killers, too difficult to set up intravenous drip no doctors
One nurse lent on my sons leg whilst trying to punch a hole in their paperwork ,
then proceeded to write down numbers from the obs machine and they had not cleared it from the last patient it was only when we told them they actually turned it on and took my sons obs properly.
no one could prescribe a sling it needs a doctor and they were rare as hens teeth,
to be honest I could go on but it seems pointless this hospital has been like this for years.
