HEALTH: The noise in hospital was endless

Have your say

I was recently admitted to the Pilgrim Hospital and would like to tell of my experience.

Firstly the ambulance men were superb. The emergency treatment was first class and the doctors were very experienced and competent.

The food and staff taking it round to us patients were so good. Also the toilets and shower rooms were spotless.

I would like to take issue that I could not find a nurse on the ward when I wanted to speak to one and it seemed to consist of auxiliaries.

Also the noise was endless. Not very nice whilst trying to rest. I was on a ward consisting of four beds, and unfortunately was able to hear all of the patients’ ailments.

It seems a busy hospital and perhaps my complaints may be trifling, but at the end of the day hospitals are built for patients’ benefit and not the people running them.
