"pain management"

About: West Cumberland Hospital

Anything else?

I was moved twice during my one week stay, this was due to a lack of beds in a particular day - not really satisfactory. However the nurses were friendly, and the meals were good. one of the pain management dr's came to see me and I was shocked when he asked me why I was taking morphine - it ws one of their consultants who had prescribed these opiates for me just two days before. Hope I necvver meet the pain management dr again as he has a horride bedside manner.
