Recently I gave birth at Sale Hospital. Whilst the midwives are generally good there were some other departments that I was not happy with.
Firstly, I gave birth on a Friday and was there over the weekend. The meals on the weekend were utterly ridiculous. I understand that the kitchen serves the whole hospital and whilst some people can't eat much....after giving birth and breast feeding you do need food! Each time I ticked 'large' for the meals and what was served would barely cover a saucer plate. Even if I ticked all options (which isn't much on the weekends), I still would have been hungry!
Secondly, whilst there is a lovely person that cleans in the maternity ward....there was another cleaner that failed to knock every time they entered my room. I mentioned it to the nurses and the fourth time they came in they finally knocked. This was just plain rude and a total shock, as privacy can be a very important issue after just giving birth! I did find myself in a compromising position as the cleaner entered unannounced when the nurses were tending to me. Very disappointed and embarrassed, put in a situation that should never have happened.
