What I liked
I was placed in an individual room of my own ( after waiting 5hours...)
The room was cleaned very extensively.
I know its not their fault, but the nurses would rarely speak to you but when they did, they were very nice.
What could be improved
Food that I could eat wasn't provide (I'm lactose intollerant).
I wasn't informed about my diagnosis, the tests, the results, what the ward I was on was for.
The nurses talked loudly from around 10pm-4am.
When I was discharged, the Dr who did so was incredibly patronising and treated me like I was 8, not 18. He didn't seem to understand how hard it was being in that ward, isolated in my own room with the door shut. He was really uneccesarily rude.
Unless you absoloutly have no other choice, avoid it.
