About: Darent Valley Hospital

Anything else?

The staff dont consider the patients views at all

They all have different ideas on what is wrong with a patient

Examples of this are my daughter having a drip forced in her arm which could have raptured a vein and a week later left a massive bruise

Being given an enima against our better judgement which has left the patient still messing over a week later resulting in a red sore and bleeding bottom

our son being told he has to have an operation for appendix when there is nothing wrong with his appendix at all

A friend being refused his epilepsy drugs as no drug chart had been written up

Have no trust whatsoever in this hospital

The staff have no idea of special needs

if you have the bog standard treatment and you are Mr or Mrs Average then fine if not forget it
