I cant thank you enough for looking after my grandson noah griffiths ward 17 and all who work there everone of you not once but twice thank you sooooooo much xx
I attended the a&e department with a significant amount of abdominal pain & an extremely high fever. I cannot thank the doctors & nurses from the a&e department enough for the care I received there. I was seen in prompt time & all the necessary investigations were also very prompt. However I have received the complete opposite when being seen to on the wards!..from a&e I was transferred to ward 2 with suspected appendicitis to await an us scan..I was left on a bed for over 1.5 hours without any contact from a nurse. It was the most frightening experience of my life as I lay there in agonising pain & unable to move to get some help. This was my first experience as a patient on a ward
I got rushed into A&E with what turns out to be a panic attack, i was dreading it as this hospital is known for the long waiting hours, i got seen to, X-Rayed, and had a ECG and got discharged all in 40 minutes. Great service and made me feel at piece! Thank you to the doctors and nurses who helped me in this scary time.
I was in this hospital for a total hip replacement. I can not fault my surgical team they were and still are absolutely brilliant. However the care I received at the hands of some of the staff on ward 7 was beyond disgusting. I was forced by the Physios before my op into walking day in and day out for a few days in total agony so that in the end I told them to leave me alone and since then I was in chronic unbearable pain that nothing took away. They used me as a lab rat to take meds that either made me feel so ill I was asleep for 48 hours at a stretch and sleep was the only thing that took the pain away. Having had a hip replacement One nurse tried to force me onto a toilet that was sprayed thickly with human waste. It was lucky I was so alert and was able to stop the nurse and refuse to use the toilet. I hardly ate anything while I was there and in the 5 weeks I was there I lost over a stone in weight. The food is geared towards vegetarians NOT normal people who cares if the food is nutritionally balanced if there either is not enough of it or there is no meat choices for those of us who have a taste for it and need to replace blood lost after a major operation. The menu is supposed to be seasonal but has not been changed since last April 2015 when I had my first hip done. I had one member of staff removed after she threatened me and leaned into me in a threatening manner and even threatened to get my operation cancelled which I know she has no powers to do. I would hate to think what would happen on ward 7 to any frail old ladies that can't speak up for themselves or dare not would be going through on this orthopaedic ward. I am totally disgusted at the treatment I had by the few staff I had issues with. I was also fitted for a hip brace I am having to go back to the hospital to have this re fitted because it was fitted incorrectly and then super glued so it could not even be changed at home meaning that I have had to be on total bed rest while waiting a week to go back to get this equipment sorted out. I am now seeking legal advice.
