I have recently been a patient at Box Hill Hospital and have had several trips there in the past. They are absolutely marvelous. The nursing care is all very good. Everyone is polite and I have received good treatment.
However, I was in a two bed room and the patient beside me talked loudly on their mobile phone all night long and I got no sleep. This is the second time this has happened during one of my stays at Box Hill.
The other thing is, in my opinion, the tourniquets are useless. They are a one use only tourniquet and you can't even feel them when they are on. Because of this, they couldn't get a vein. If they used an old fashioned one, they would get a vein straight away.
