HOSPITAL: Noise was endless

Have your say

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

Firstly the ambulance men who took me there were superb. I cannot fault their care whilst I was with them.

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. I could not fault them in any way.

Also the toilets, 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.

Also a couple of auxiliaries should not be nursing. They do not, in my opinion, have the right attitude.

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.
