On the morning following knee replacment surgery the ward that i was on had no hot water and patients were unable to wash until 11.00 am. Only a miinor inconvenience for me but god only knows how cleaning and other services were carried out.
The 2 Health Care Assistants were fantastic but ran ragged on the ward, far better than the Nurses who did not answer patient calls during the HCA meal break and were slightly aloof.
Surgeon was fantastic and a real gent.
Overall, stay was uncomplicated but feel that more HCA should be employed given patient numbers. Some of the Nurses should be more closely supervised so that they spend less time at the admin station talking.
