"Pleased to be home, feeling alot more comfortable..."

About: University Hospital Of North Tees

What I liked

Some of the staff where pleasent and helpful and took time to care correctly.

What could be improved

Lack of rooms/beds. As i needed to rest and was in pain but the quad room i was in, was very busy at all times and i never got a minutes worth of sleep. Which is ok when you are all being induced for labour and not having to rest there for 5 days but not when you need to rest and have a problem in your pregnancy.

Staff did not have a minute to know how you where apart from if you buzzed them and said something.

Anything else?

I went into hospital to try and rest and to discover what was wrong with me and i came home after a Tuesday to Saturday stay over feeling alot worse. Lack of sleep Lack of food Feeling alot more upset with my symptoms and still didn't know what was causing my pain. Eventually leaving me to having a panic attack. Which i didn't know what happened untill the next day when a nurse explained to me.

Hopefully once my baby is born the pain i'm getting will disppear as it must be just coming from being pregnant.
