About: Castle Hill Hospital

Anything else?

i was extremly shocked with chh when my fiancee was admitted for glandular fever that our gp had failed 5 times to see my partner was tranfered from hull ryal to castle hill and put on ward 20 or 21 the care he recieved was so appaling the nurse only got him his meds as my sister is law is a matron at a nursing home so she knew all the paperwork etc he had been left with no meds for over 24hours ....also for a man who couldnt eat offering him pies when he cant swallow luckily one of the good nurses give him a cuppa soup out of her own packup but the other nurse wasnt happy whe3n my sister in law put her in her place she didnt like it then she decided to snarl and my partner and said Ive gone out my way for you she had only changede his painkiller from tablet to dispersible also the cleanliness was not up 2 standard i really did feel for the old man next to my partner he had early staes of dementia he waited for 1 hour ringin his buzzer to go to the toilet however when they finally come he had weed in his pillow as he pysically couldnt get to the toilet and then to tell him he was bang outta order and he should ring his buzzer and also the fact they left his drinks miles away from him howevr there was a heroin addict on the other side of the ward and the nursesw would come runnning every time he soiled himself on purpose but then to treat a dementia suffer like that i must say i wouldnt recomend this hospital for anything than outpatients as the cardiology outpatients are great but i was truly shocked to see nurses acting so nasty when there job is to care if you dont want to care dont work in the nhs i was truly appaled
