Collecting a friend from the Hospital today after cataract operation, 15 minutes waiting to get to second floor to see how patient was getting on, he had operation and waiting to see Doctor and receive drops, so went down to main entrance to wait awhile took another ten minutes to get a lift down, ten more minutes to get back up and collect patient , the we had twenty minutes wait tog et a lift back down, this was very distressing and not good to see patients in beds waiting to get into lifts obviously very poorly and should not be put in that position.
Should a lift be set aside just to move patients around the hospital.
Something needs to be sorted re- lifts in the end two of four lifts were not operating, visiting hours chaos with visitors waiting ages to get to wards on all floors.
