Posted by Day Staff (as ),
Was recently in your Brighton hospital and found the night staff to be very caring. However, the 2 days I spent there with the day staff attending me were anything but. Following a hysterectomy I had vaginal padding removed without any pre pain killers & had to ask the nurse to stop 3 times as it felt like glass being pulled through me - at the end of it with body shaking I ended up lying in foetal position & the nurse finally got me pain killers. There was no direction given to me about showering, my surgeon requested that I be taken for a walk the day following my surgery & this never happened. No family member listed on my form was contacted after my surgery. On day of my discharge my daughter approached the nurses station to ask a question only to be told to go back to my room and press the buzzer, she was appalled at this response. I felt that the friendliest person on the ward was the kitchen menu lady!
