I recently attended Sale Hospital for a leg injury. The staff were all very caring. The nurses were very, very good, and they always ensured that my pain was managed.
I ended up having an X-ray and an ultrasound to find out what damage was done. The doctor came in to share with me the results and explained that I would need to remain grounded for some time in order for it to heal. This is proving a bit frustrating given that I can’t move around much now that I am back at home, although I understand that it has to be done to give my leg time to heal. Thankfully I receive help in the home, which is especially good while I am recovering.
There was really only two small things that I noticed could be improved. The first is that while on the ward, I shared a room with another person, and they always left their light on at all times, including through the night. It was like there was sunshine at all hours of the day, making it nearly impossible to get sleep at night. Nurses would come in and wake me to do observations three times throughout the night, which I understood and was grateful for, but when paired with the light it meant that I didn’t get much sleep at all. I am not sure what their reason for having their light on all day was, and none of the staff could tell me, but this is something that perhaps could be looked at.
The other small thing was in regards to the food. Overall the meals were quite good, but I found that often I didn’t get the things that I marked off on my meal order.
I am back home now, which is great, and overall my experience was a very caring one. It is just a few little things that could be improved to make the experience better.
