"C4 Blackburn"

About: Royal Blackburn Hospital

(as the patient),

I stayed her for several nights for viral illness, the staff were polite and always went out of their way to help, or get me extras so sweet, I've been cared for so much.

What horrified me was that more serious patients, mostly all older people, were in my ward with life threatening conditions. I could not sleep properly due to each patient urinating in their beds and the foul smell was horrific to have to sleep through it made me more ill. There was also a man who kept using very filthy language and swearing and flashing when he was empty his urine bag. I think patients need to be put in age appropriate or illness appropriate wards.
